The Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module is a dual-node high-density computing blade for cloud, middleware, and virtualized environments. The server blade's two compute nodes (Node 0 and Node 1) are housed on a single motherboard in a single blade enclosure. The server module is only supported in the Sun Blade 6000 modular system chassis.
The server is available in two models:
The Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module with GbE (X6275M2–BB).
The Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module with 10GbE (X6275M2–CB).
The following illustration shows the layout of the main system components:
The server module is configured as follows:
Both server module compute nodes are identical and symmetric, but are fully independent of each other. Each node supports two CPUs and 12 cores of compute density.
Each node supports up to twelve low voltage DDR3 DIMMs (up to 96 GB of main memory using 8 GB DIMMs).
Note - Both nodes of the server module must be configured identically (CPUs and memory).
The following network interfaces are available:
One 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet port per node using the embedded Intel 82567 GbE controller (server module model X6275M2–BB).
One 10GbE ports per node using the embedded Mellanox ConnectX–2 controller and XAUI (server module model X6275M2–CB).
Each node has its own service processor based on the AST2100 chip providing Oracle Integrated Lights Out Management (ILOM version 3.0), and a shared 10/100 Ethernet management port.
Each node supports the addition of an optional 24 GB Sun Flash Module (FMod), which provides fast and reliable solid-state storage and a secure local boot source for the node.
Note - Server module nodes do not support the installation of a RAID Expansion Module (REM). However, each node has one chassis PCIe EM slot available which could be used for a supported external host bus adapter (HBA) connected to external storage.
Each node has an internal USB port (under the service processor board at the back of the blade) for the addition of an optional USB flash drive for local storage.
