Sun Fire V1280
Sun V1280 is a midrange server available in a rack optimized
form factor. Sun claims using this server can simplify
IT maintenance, increase system uptime, and relieve
applications constrained by Windows limitations.
The V1280 can have up to 12 UltraSPARC III processors,
96 GB of memory and hot swappable CPU or memory boards
that use Sun's Dynamic Reconfiguration (DR) technology.
The Sun Solaris Operating Environment
(OE) along with the Sun Open Net Environment (Sun ONE)
software stack is used in the V1280. It is claimed that
due to the binary compatibility from one to 106 CPUs,
and a broad application support, the Solaris OE helps
enterprises to easily deploy applications on Sun systems,
right from the Sun Fire V1280 system, to the high-end
Sun Fire 15K system.
Sun claims that the system has
been designed to provide a secure, scalable and cost-effective
platform for Wintel server consolidation and mainframe
re-hosting. It also has capabilities to consolidate
Windows database server applications onto a single Sun
Fire V1280 system.
The V1280 supports Sun Cluster
configurations to provide higher availability of data
and services using automatic fault detection and recovery.
