Sun | Sun Fire X4250 Server

Introduced in July of 2008, the Sun Fire X4250 server was created to run large memory-demanding, disk-intensive applications more efficiently, making it especially suited for web serving, database, and high performance computing.

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

With a form factor of only two rack units, this server uses one or two dual or quad core Xeon processors, up to 64 GB of RAM, and up to 16 hotplug 73, 146, or 300 GB 10K RPM or 73 GB 15K RPM 2.5” disk drives.

The X4250 supports multiple operating systems including Solaris Solaris 10 x86, 64-bit Update 4 or later; Red Hat Enterprise Linux 32-bit and 64-bit; SUSE Enterprise Linux 64-bit; Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition, (SP2) 32-bit and 64-bit; and VMware ESX.

The Sun Fire X4250 server was EOL'd (end-of-lifed) in January of 2010, and replaced by the Sun Fire X4270 server.
