Sun Fires Blade Salvo

Arthur Cole

The battle of the blades continues, with four-socket models as the new weapons of choice.

 

Less than two weeks after HP introduced a new Integrity server with an eye toward peeling customers away from Sun, Sun has responded with a four-socket server that ties into the Sun Blade 8000 chassis.

 

The new X8450 blade packs up to four Xeon 7300 quads (that's the Tigerton for those of you keeping track of the brand names) accessing between 8 GB and 128 GB of DDR2 main memory. The processors are available in 1.86, 2.13 and 2.4 GHz versions.

 

The first X8450s will be out in March at a list price of under $9,000. They will be certified to run the new Solaris 10 Update 4, as well as 32- and 64-bit versions of RHEL 4 Update 5 and Windows Server Standard and Enterprise Editions, as well as 64-bit SUSE Linux and VMware ESX 3.0.2.
