Sun Microsystems has unveiled new six-core X64 servers to support virtualisation and aid datacentre efficiency.
Sun Microsystems has extended its family of Intel Xeon-based servers with two new offerings to support scalability, virtualisation and consolidation.
The Sun Fire X4450 server and Sun Blade X6450 server module, equipped with up to six processing cores, run a variety of operating systems, including Solaris, Linux, Windows and VMware.
Lisa Sieker, vice-president of systems marketing at Sun Microsystems, said, "We are adding new value for customers with Intel's next-generation six-core Xeon chips in our high-density, highly scalable, energy-efficient systems. We also continue to work with Intel to optimise Solaris for Xeon processors."
The Sun Fire X4450 server and Sun Blade X6450 server module powered by the Intel Xeon processor 7400 series are scheduled to begin shipping next month.
