Sun | Sun Fire X2270 Server

The X2270 was introduced in April of 2009 as the replacement for the X2200 M2 and the X2250.

The Sun Fire X2270 open network system design was designed to protect and optimize Web architectures and commercial high-performance computing (HPC) environments with claimed ‘unequaled’ “performance, scalability, and ecoefficiency.” The Sun Fire X2270 server provides three times the performance at 66% the energy consumption of current-generation systems, and up to 50% savings in data center real estate.

The key applications for the Sun Fire X2270 server are: HPC/grid computing, electronic design automation (EDA), MCAE, financial modeling, web server (low end), IT infrastructure (security, DNS, proxy, caching, firewall, gateway), messaging/collaboration, file/print.

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

The Sun Fire X2270 server is the second ‘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 quad core processors, up to 48 GB of RAM, and up to to 4 hotplug 500 GB or 1 TB SATA 3.5" (7,200RPM) disk drives.

The X2270 supports multiple operating systems including Solaris 10 OS, OpenSolaris OS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, VMware ESX 3.5, Windows Server 2003 Standard/Enterprise Editions, Windows Server 2008 Standard/Enterprise Editions, and Windows Server 2008 Standard/Enterprise/Datacenter Editions.
