Sun Fire[TM] Enterprise Servers Nearly Double Performance at Little Cost

Sun has just introduced the first throughput computing systems in the
industry with its Sun Fire[TM] Enterprise Servers that rely on the
UltraSPARC[R] IV processor and the Sun Java[TM] Enterprise System. The
new family of servers combines the advances of throughput computing
technology from the processor and SMP architecture with the Solaris[TM]
10 Operating System (Solaris OS) and multithreaded applications.

These new systems tightly integrate on-chip capabilities with the OS to
enable customers to mix and match UltraSPARC[R] III and UltraSPARC IV
processors in their systems, nearly doubling their data center
performance at a fraction of the cost.

The new systems include:

- Sun Fire[TM] E2900: Features up to 12 chip-multithreaded UltraSPARC
IV processors and up to 96 GB of memory, delivering Sun's
throughput computing vision to the rack-optimized data center

- Sun Fire[TM] E4900, E6900: The mid-sized 12-processor departmental
server system and large 24-processor server are ideal for
datacenter tasks such as large databases, data mining or server
consolidation applications

- Sun Fire[TM] E20K and E25K: 36- and 72-processor servers are the
flagships of Sun's binary-compatible server line, ideal for large
consolidation projects and mission-critical database workloads.

The servers ship with Sun[TM] Remote Services Net Connect installed.
