Oracle Sun Fire X4170 M2 Server
Compact 1 RU enterprise-class server
Packing the optimal balance of compute power, memory capacity, and I/O capability into a compact and energy efficient 1 rack unit (RU) enclosure, Oracle’s Sun Fire X4170 M2 server is the most versatile IT infrastructure building block. This server is ideal for middleware workloads, enterprise systems administration needs, such as identity management, network management, and systems management, and as a platform for application development.
The Sun Fire X4170 M2 server utilizes the Intel Xeon Processor 5600 Series and offers unparalleled performance balanced with compute, memory and I/O capabilities that are accelerated with two flash options, making it the most versatile building block for a number of IT applications. It is ideal for running middleware applications such as WebLogic, systems administration applications such as Oracle Enterprise Manager and Oracle Identity Manager, and software development applications such as Oracle Solaris Studio.
The two new flash integration options include Solid State Drives (SSDs), and Sun Flash Accelerator PCIe cards, which can deliver I/O performance improvements equivalent to four hundred 15k RPM HDDs. They can also reduce power consumption by as much as eighty percent. In addition, storage connectivity bandwidth is doubled from the previous generation server with the upgrade to SAS-2 interfaces. The combination of these features with high efficiency power supplies and new algorithms for power capping make this server the best performing and most efficient of its kind.
System management is simplified with Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) that comes standard in every Sun Fire X4170 M2 server. ILOM centralizes system management locally or remotely to ease system configuration, software provisioning and updates, providing a consistent interface across the entire x86 product line.
