System Features

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:
