Server Components

Table 7  Oracle Server X6-2 Components 
One or two processors with four integrated DDR4 memory controllers per processor. Processors with the following capabilities are supported (factory installed):
  • 22-core, 2.2 GHz, 145W processors

  • 14-core, 2.6 GHz, 135W processors

  • 10-core, 2.2 GHz, 85W processors

  • 6-core, 3.4 GHz, 135W processors

For the latest information on CPU specifications, go to the Oracle x86 servers web site and navigate to the Oracle Server X6-2 page: https://www.oracle.com/servers/technologies/x86-servers.html
Up to 12 RDIMMs per processor for a maximum of 24 DDR4 RDIMMs and a maximum of 768 GB of memory are supported in dual-processor systems.
A maximum of 12 DDR4 RDIMMs and a maximum of 384 GB of memory are supported in single-processor systems.
RDIMMs (16 GB and 32 GB) and LRDIMMs (64 GB) are supported.
Storage drives
The storage drive configuration can comprise both hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid state drives (SSDs). The configuration includes:
  • Up to eight 2.5-inch hot-pluggable SAS HDDs/SSDs with an optional SATA DVD

Note -  NVM-Express SSDs are only supported on servers running Oracle Linux or Oracle Solaris operating systems.

Note -  The NVM-Express PCIe switch card is required for storage drive configurations that contain NVM-Express SSDs.

PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 I/O slots
Three PCIe Gen3 slots that accommodate low-profile PCIe cards.
  • Slots 1 and 2: x16 electrical interface

  • Slot 3: x8 electrical interface

Note -  PCIe slot 1 is nonfunctional in single-processor systems.

Internal HBA
One dedicated PCIe Gen3 slot for use with an optional internal-only host bus adapter (HBA) card. This internal HBA is used to control and manage the storage drives.
Ethernet ports
Up to four 10GBASE-T RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) ports on the rear panel.

Note -  Ethernet ports NET 2 and NET 3 are nonfunctional in single-processor systems.

USB 2.0 ports
Two front, two rear, and two internal.
Video (VGA) ports
One rear high-density DB-15 video port.
Service processor (SP)
The server has an integrated service processor (SP). The SP provides IPMI 2.0-compliant remote management capabilities. The SP features:
  • Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) version 3.2.6 (initial version)

  • Local Oracle ILOM command-line access using a serial connection

  • Support for Ethernet access to the SP through a dedicated, 10/100/1000BASE-T management port (NET MGT) and optionally through one of the host Ethernet ports (sideband management)

  • Support for remote KVMS (keyboard, video, mouse, and storage) over IP

Management Software
  • Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) version 5.0 or later on the service processor

  • Oracle Hardware Management Pack, downloadable from the Oracle site

Power supplies
Two hot-swappable and highly-redundant 600W power supplies.
Cooling fans
Four 40-mm, hot-swappable fan modules for chassis cooling. Each fan module contains two counter-rotating fan pairs (four rotors total).
Each power supply has its own cooling fans.
Operating systems and virtualization software
  • Oracle Solaris

  • Oracle Linux

  • Oracle VM

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux

  • Microsoft Windows Server

  • VMware ESXi
