Sun | Sun Fire X4440 Server

Introduced in May of 2008, the Sun Fire X4440 is a powerful, scalable, energy-efficient server designed to support escalating business and IT growth without increasing operational expenses. It features super fast AMD Opteron processors, huge storage, massive memory capacity, and numerous connectivity options.

The 64-bit, two rack-unit (2U) Sun Fire X4440 server delivers the highest performance and scalability in its class, and, at the time of its introduction, was the world’s most compact four-socket, x64 platform, capable of housing up to four Six-Core AMD Opteron processors, more than 2 TB of internal storage, 256 GB of memory, and twice the networking connectivity in a chassis half the size of competing products.

The X4440 server offers a solid foundation for rapidly rising data center requirements, and its unparalleled speed, system density, exceptional connectivity, power-saving, virtualization, and management features make it an ideal solution for server consolidation and database services.

The Sun Fire X4440 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, X4250, X4270, X4275, X4500, X4540, X4600 M2, and the X4640.

The Sun Fire X4440 server uses two or four dual, quad, or six core AMD Opteron processors, up to 256 GB of RAM, and up to 8 hotplug 2.5” 73 GB, 146 GB, or 300 GB 10K RPM disk drives or 8 ea. 73 GB 15K disk drives.

The X4440 supports multiple operating systems including Solaris 10 8/07 x86, (U4) 64-bit; Solaris 10 10/08 (U5) 64-bit (depending on CPU being used); Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0, (U4) or later, 32-bit and 64-bit; SUSE Linux Enterprise 10, (SP1) 64-bit; Windows Server 2003 Standard/Enterprise Edition, (SP2) or later, 32-bit; Windows Server 2003 Standard/Enterprise Edition or later, 64-bit.
