Sun | Enterprise M5000 Server

Introduced in August of 2007, the M5000 is one of two direct replacements for the Sun Fire V490 server and the Sun Fire E2900 server, the other direct replacement being the Enterprise M4000. Providing mainframe performance in a 10RU system, the Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 server offers non-disruptive in box transitions and the ability to mix and match processor generations, without downtime, expensive upgrade kits or forklifts, just like the M4000. The Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 is also ideally suited for tasks such as ERP, SCM, CRM deployments, collaboration and large shared memory applications and can easily be scaled out to meet increased future requirements. The M5000 is optimized for 24x7 mission critical computing and large shared memory applications; allows you to mix and match up to four 2.4 GHz SPARC64 VII processors and/or 2.15 GHz SPARC64 VI processors in the same system; has built-in, integrated, flexible virtualization technology; its SPARC64 VII quad-core processor provides an almost twofold performance improvement on HPC or floating point intensive workloads, and up to 80% more performance on commercial applications; and it is an ideal consolidation platform with up to 4 dynamic domains, and support for thousands of Solaris containers.
