Description
Processor
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 x6-2L page:
Memory
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 devices (Front)
Storage drive configurations can comprise both hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid state disk drives (SSDs). Configurations include:
  • Up to twelve 3.5-inch hot-pluggable SAS HDDs

  • Up to twenty-four 2.5-inch hot-pluggable SAS HDDs or SSDs, with optional support for up to four PCIe-based NVM-Express SSDs

  • Up to eight 2.5-inch hot-pluggable SAS HDDs or SSDs, with optional support for a SATA DVD and/or up to four PCIe-based NVM-Express SSDs

Note -  The internal SAS expander and its associated PCIe host bus adapter (HBA) card are required for storage drive configurations that contain twelve 3.5-inch storage drives or twenty-four 2.5-inch storage drives.

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

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

Storage devices (Rear)
Up to two 2.5-inch SAS storage drives. These storage drives are supported only in the twelve 3.5-inch storage drive or twenty-four 2.5-inch storage drive configurations.

Note -  The internal SAS expander and its associated PCIe HBA card are required for the rear-mounted 2.5-inch SAS storage drives.

PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 I/O slots
Six PCIe Gen3 slots that accommodate low-profile PCIe cards:
  • Slots 1, 2, 5, and 6: x8 electrical interface

  • Slots 3 and 4: x16 electrical interface

Note -  PCIe slots 1, 2, and 3 are nonfunctional in single-processor systems.

Internal HBA(s)
PCIe slot 6 is the HBA card slot for controlling and managing SAS storage drives.
NVM-Express Switch
PCIe HBA card for controlling and managing optional NVM-Express storage drives.
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) 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) on the service processor

  • Oracle Hardware Management Pack, downloadable from the Oracle web site

Power supplies
Two hot-swappable and redundant 1000W power supplies.
Cooling Fans
Four 80-mm, hot-swappable fan modules. Each fan module contains two counter-rotating fan pairs. 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
