The Enterprise 6000, at the time of its introduction, was considered to be the leader in scalability and performance.
The server is a thirty-processor UltraSPARC-based system with sixteen board slots, has an 83/90/100 MHz gigaplane, and used 167 MHz, 250 MHz, 333 MHz, and 400 MHz CPU modules. Maximum memory for the E6000 was 240 ea. 256 MB DIMMs, giving the system a maximum memory capacity of 60 GB.
The E6000 also has the ability to run internal disk boards which used 2.1 GB, 4.2 GB, 9.1 GB, and 18.2 GB disk drives, though they were intended primarily as boot disks.
The E6000 was EOL’d (end-of-lifed) in January of 1999, and replaced by the Enterprise 6500.
