Sun | Sun Fire 6800 Server

Introduced in April of 2001 as the replacement for the Enterprise 6500 server, the Sun Fire 6800 server is a 24-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 6800 is 384 GB using 1GB DIMMs.

The Sun Fire 6800 incorporated D240 media trays to provide disk, tape, and DVD-ROM drives, the drive capacity of each D240 media tray being 2 ea. 18.2, 36.4, 73.4, or 146.8 GB SCSI disk drives.

The Sun Fire 6800 comes in its own 75” data center cabinet, which had additional room for disk arrays and D240 media trays.

The Sun Fire X6800 was EOL’d (end-of-lifed) in June 2005.
