Oracle's Sun Blade 6000 chassis is uniquely designed to support a range of application environments by integrating Oracle's x86 and SPARC server modules (blades) with high-capacity networking and storage blades. This extremely eco-efficient and flexible blade enclosure provides a solid foundation for the most demanding traditional and virtualized applications.
The Sun Blade 6000 modular system provides the following advantages:
Industry-leading chassis bandwidth for peak performance and investment protection
Reduces power and cooling costs and conserves data center space
No-cost, full-featured, single-systems management toolset that reduces administration complexity
Simplifies the data center by consolidating heterogeneous workloads into a single hardware platform
The system features are summarized in the following table. System components are described later in this document. Additional system specifications can be found in the Sun Blade 6000 Modular System Site Planning Guide.
