Sun | Sun Fire 4800 Server

Introduced in April of 2001 as the replacement for the Enterprise 4500 server, the Sun Fire 4800 server is a twelve-processor machine that used UltraSPARC III CPUs (750MHz), UltraSPARC III Cu (copper based) CPUs (900MHz, 1050MHz or 1200MHz), UltraSPARC IV CPUs (1050MHz, 1200MHz, or 1350MHz), and UltraSPARC IV+ (1.5GHz or 1.8GHz) CPUs.

Maximum memory for the Sun Fire 4800 is 192 GB using 1GB DIMMs.

The Sun Fire 4800 did not have internal disk drives, but instead was combined with the D240 media tray, which held 2 ea. 18.2, 36.4, 73.4, or 146.8 GB SCSI disk drives.

The Sun Fire 4800 is 17.5 RU (rack units) tall, and came in both deskside and rack-mountable versions.

The Sun Fire X4800 was EOL’d (end-of-lifed) in June 2005.
