Product Features

The Sun Blade X6275 M2 Server Module product features are listed in the following table.

Up to four Intel Xeon 5500 Series Quad-core processors per server module.
  • Intel Xeon six-core X5670, 2.93 GHz, 12 MB cache, 6.40 GT/s QPI, HT, Turbo Boost, 95 W

  • Intel Xeon six-core X5660, 2.80 GHz, 12 MB cache, 6.40 GT/s QPI, HT, Turbo Boost, 95 W

  • Intel Xeon quad-core E5620, 2.4 GHz, 12 MB cache, 5.86 GT/s QPI, HT, Turbo boost, 80 W

Two independent compute nodes, 0 and 1. The Sun Blade X6275 M2 Server Module has two symmetric compute nodes, with each node contains two Intel Xeon processors sockets.
Four sockets, 16 cores (eight cores per node), and 32 threads per server module.
Up to 24 DDR3 LV DIMMs per blade (12 per node).

Up to 2 DDR3 LV DIMMs per channel, 3 channels per installed processor.

Supported DIMMs:

  • 4 GB dual-rank, LV DDR3–1333 MHz, +1.35 V, 2 Gb

  • 8 GB dual-rank, LV DDR3-1333 MHz, +1.35 V, 2 Gb

Up to 96 GB of main memory (per compute node) using 8 GB DDR3 LV DIMMs.

Up to 48 GB of main memory (per compute node) using 4 GB DDR3 LV DIMMs.

Up to total of 192 GB of memory, per server module (8 GB DIMMs).

See DIMM Population Rules and Guidelines for the Sun Blade X6275 M2 Server module.

Video Memory
8 MB, Maximum resolution: 1280x1024 pixels.
Flash Modules
Two on-board 24 GB SATA-based Flash Modules (FMods)(one per compute node) with Energy Storage modules.
Two on-board USB 2.0 ports (one per compute node).
QDR Infiniband Express Module with Connect X-2
Service processor (SP)
Server modules include a service processor (SP) mezzanine card. The SP provides IPMI 2.0 compliant remote management capabilities across a broad range of Sun server models. Each server module node’s SP features:
  • Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM)

  • Local ILOM command-line access using serial connection

  • 10/100 management Ethernet port to mid-plane

  • Remote keyboard, video, mouse, and storage (KVMS) over IP

Front Panel I/O
Two universal connector ports (UCP), one per compute node, are available for use with the multi-port cable. The dongle cable provides the following interface connections:

  • VGA graphics

  • Serial port

  • Dual USB ports (keyboard/mouse/USB device)

Operating systems

For supported operating systems, see Sun Blade X6275 M2 Server Module Product Notes.
Chassis Compatibility
The Sun Blade 6000 modular system chassis is the only supported chassis.
