Sun | Enterprise 6500 Server

Introduced in April 1998 as the direct replacement for the Enterprise 6000, the Enterprise 6500 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, 400 MHz, and 464 MHz CPU modules. Maximum memory was 240 ea. 256 MB DIMMs, giving the system a maximum memory capacity of 60 GB.

The E6500 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 E6500 was EOL’d (end-of-lifed) in September 2002 and replaced by the Sun Fire 6800.
