Sun Fire™ 12K Server Breaks Industry Price/Performance Barrier
Sun Fire™ 12K Server Breaks Industry Price/Performance Barrier

Sun Microsystems, Inc. launched the Sun Fire™ 12K, a new class of low-cost, high-performance servers at previously unseen price points. The Sun Fire 12K delivers features seen in servers priced above $1 million (USD), providing customers with maximum investment protection, system availability, flexibility, and application performance. Building on Sun's five-year leadership in server technology, the Sun Fire 12K also incorporates Sun's breakthrough Uniboard technology, assuring customers of interoperability with Sun's complete UltraSPARC®/Solaris™ Operating Environment server family.

The Sun Fire 12K, Sun's "Regatta killer," offers technology that's years ahead at fractions of the price of IBM's p690. The Uniboard CPU/memory board, which is transportable and interchangeable among all Sun Fire 3800-15K systems, drives down the cost of application provisioning, and is central to customers seeking to lower total cost of ownership and improve ROI. Uniboard packaging allows customers to plan and manage entire application deployments rather than focus on one system at a time. This provides maximum investment protection, system availability, flexibility, and application performance.

Strategically positioned between the Sun Fire 6800 server and the Sun Fire 15K, Sun's newest UNIX® server is the ideal system for customers undertaking server consolidation and mainframe rehosting. With cross-generational and binary compatibility across the entire SPARC/Solaris OE product line, the Sun Fire 12K scales up to 52 UltraSPARC III 900 MHz processors and offers 288 GB of memory running on the Solaris 8 OE.
