There is small, but exciting news on the web, since the Oracle Sun Fire x2270 M2 was announced last week. This is the first x64 server refresh to be announced by Oracle since the Sun acquisition, so this is good news for those spreading rumors ...





The x2270 M2 is a model refresh for the old 2270 and the first server to include the new 32 nm Intel 5600 processor (a.k.a Westmere). Other great new feature are the two slots for Sun Flash modules on the motherboard. This server is positioned for cloud or technical computing environments. As usual a white paper and documentation are on the linked Oracle.com website.



Especially important for partners you can find important info on the wikis.sun.com site, like an overview of option boards and os drivers and a list of supported Oracle and third party OS.
