Sun | Sun Fire X2250 Server

Introduced in July of 2008 as the replacement for the X2100 M2 server, the Sun Fire X2250 was billed as “Sun's most compact and powerful entry-level server ever.”

Sun intended the X2250 server to be used in the mechanical computer aided engineering (MCAE), energy exploration, electronic design automation (EDA), and life sciences industries, and said its key application uses are aerodynamic modeling, seismic interpretation, microprocessor/ASIC simulation, genetic sequencing, options analysis, and financial services.

During its product lifecycle, the Sun Fire X2250 server was so fast that it set the SPECint_rate2006 world record.

The Sun Fire X2250 is part of the popular line of Sun ‘X’ servers that started with the X2100, and includes the X2200 M2, X2270, X4100, X4140, X4150, X4170, X4200, X4240, X4250, X4270, X4275, X4440, X4500, X4540, X4600 M2, and the X4640.

The Sun Fire X2250 server was the first ‘X’ series server to use Intel® Xeon® processors (instead of AMD Opteron CPUs).

With a form factor of only one rack unit, this server uses one or two dual core or quad core processors, up to 32 GB of RAM, and up to to 2 hotplug 250 GB, 500 GB or 1 TB SATA 3.5" (7,200RPM) disk drives.

The X2250 supports multiple operating systems with following minimum release levels: Solaris 10 10/08 or later; OpenSolaris 2008.11 OS; Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 U6 (AS) (32-bit/64-bit) or greater; Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 U1 (32-bit/64-bit) or greater; SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP1 (64-bit) or greater; Windows 2003 (32-bit) SP2 or greater (Web/Standard/Enterprise Editions); and Windows 2003 (64-bit) or greater (Standard/Enterprise Editions).

The Sun Fire X2250 was EOL’d (end-of-lifed) in December of 2009, and was replaced by the Sun Fire X2270 Server.
