Oracle and SUN Someone has found the manual to Sun's Ultra 40 - which hasn't even been announced yet. The machine clearly is the bigger brother of the Ultra 20. It apparently sports two AMD Opteron processors (single or dualcore; 2.0Ghz or faster; 1MB cache), eight PC3200 DIMM slots (2GB per DIMM), and more. It will come pre-loaded with Solaris 10 (obviously) but RedHat/SUSE Linux Enterprise/Windows are also supported, in both 32bit and 64bit.

Member since:

perhaps, you are running a business, and perfer to have someone there to maintain your systems, how cheap are those white boxes when you have to put a fleet a techs just to argue with the OEMs that they should replace the component and begging for RMA's. With Sun when you have problem, call sun they say send us the broken parts, your replacements are in the mail. And of course the parts are high quality. You can also upgrade to platnium support, and sun will be knocking on your door in less than 4 hours, there goal is 2 hours, asking to see the machine and repair it.

BTW most of those cheap white boxes dont have 8 dimm slots or 2x pci-e 16x slots. neither do they have 4x plug in play sata hotswap drives, no screws, release a lever, pull out old drives, push in new drive.

you get what you pay for.
