With up to 256 available threads, this is the best platform yet for running our Logical Domains (LDoms) virtualization technology. LDoms 1.0.3, released last May, fully supports all shipping configurations of the T5440. All the necessary firmware & software comes pre-installed. If you need to download any of the LDoms 1.0.3 software, just go here.
In addition, there's a new resource available for helping administrators get the most out of their LDoms installation: the LDoms Community Cookbook. It just went live today; in fact, at the time of this writing, not all sections are live yet. Please check back often, and remember, this is a Wiki & a community resource, so feel free to add content, make corrections, etc.
To read what other Sun engineers have to say about the T5440, see Allan Packer's blog for an updated list of T5400-related blog entries.
Note: the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 Server is not to be confused with our recently anounced Sun Netra T5440 Server, which is a two socket carrier-grade server.
