Sun | Ultra 45 Workstation

Introduced in March of 2006, the Sun Ultra 45 Workstation features either single or dual UltraSPARC IIIi 1.6-GHz processor with 1-MB Level 2 cache. It also has dual 16x PCI-Express graphics slots – and at the time of its introduction, the best input/output implementation update in the industry in a decade. The Ultra 45 provides for fast, reliable, high-density storage by accommodating up to four internal SATA drives or four SAS drives, leveraging Serial ATA for high density, performance and cost, or SAS for speed. Other features of the Sun Ultra 45 Workstation include: support for up to 16 GB of ECC-protected memory; visualization-class graphics accelerator; high bandwidth memory subsystem with error correction; dual Gigabit Ethernet; three PCI Express and two PCI-X expansion slots that enable high-speed system interconnect, such as external Ultra320 SCSI and dual Gigabit Ethernet adapters; expandable, high-performance storage options; 16-bit audio in/audio out on front and rear panels.

The Sun Ultra 45, along with the Sun Ultra 25, are the last generation of SPARC processor based Sun workstations. The Sun Ultra 45 workstation was EOL'd (end-of-lifed) in October of 2008.
