UNIX Server SPARC Enterprise M3000 feature

Overview Features Specifications Documentation

Thin and cost efficient entry server with enterprise-class reliability and virtualization feature offering the lowest power consumption and software charge for database server


SPARC64™ VII+ : High performance with the highest reliability

  • Quad cores and the most efficient threading with the maximized resource usage enable excellent performance
  • Performance acceleration technologies including Simultaneous MultiThreading(SMT), super scalar, out of order, branch prediction and speculative execution
  • Multi-level data protection; ECC (Error Checking and Correction) on cache memory, parity checking and instruction retry on Registers & ALU (Arithmetic and Logical Unit), eliminates all single bit errors
  • Cutting-edge large system integration (LSI) technologies based on 65nm semiconductor technology means high performance and low power consumption

No downtime

Hardware availability fully assured by data protection and component redundancy.

  • ECC protection assures address and data bus traffic between LSI
  • Hardware-level memory patrol detects memory errors without exceptions
  • All major components including HDD, Power Supply Units and Fans can be configured redundantly and hot-swapped
  • Total system redundancy, including server, storage and network using PRIMECLUSTER

Investment Protection

SPARC/Oracle Solaris provides the certainty that protects your system assets and provides mission critical service.

  • Lower operational costs including electric charge and license charge can raise investment efficiency
  • Oracle Solaris, No.1 market share, UNIX OS (based on UNIX System V Release 4)
  • Application binary compatibility, ensures all your applications will run without change or recompilation
  • SPARC64™ VII+ and Oracle Solaris conform to the same SPARC V9 open processor architecture as all other SPARC processors and operating system versions. This provides the most stable roadmap into the future
