System Components
Processor
One or two processors with six integrated DDR4 memory controllers per processor. Processors with the following capabilities are supported (factory installed):

This is a test.

  • Intel Xeon 8168, 24 core, 2.7 GHz, 205W (Oracle Server X7-2L only)

  • Intel Xeon 8160, 24 core, 2.1 GHz, 150W

  • Intel Xeon 6140, 18 core, 2.3 GHz, 140W

  • Intel Xeon 6128, 6 core, 3.4 GHz, 115W

  • Intel Xeon 4114, 10 core, 2.0-2.2 GHz, 85W

For the latest information on processor specifications, go to the Oracle x86 servers web site and navigate to the Oracle Server X7-2 or X7-2L page: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/sun-x86/overview/index.html
Memory
Up to 12 DDR4 DIMMs per processor for a maximum of 24 RDIMMs (16 GB and 32 GB) and LRDIMMs (64 GB) with speeds up to 2667 MT/sec in dual-processor systems.

This is a test too.

Storage Drives (Oracle Server X7-2)
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 SAS3 HDDs or SATA3 SSDs, with optional support for up to eight 2.5-inch NVM-Express (NVMe) SSDs

  • Two internal SATA/PCIe M.2 flash modules

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

Storage Drives (Oracle Server X7-2L)
The storage drive configuration can comprise both hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid state drives (SSDs). The configuration includes:
  • Up to twelve 3.5-inch hot-pluggable SAS3/SATA3 HDDs/SSDs, or optional support for up to twelve 2.5-inch NVM-Express (NVMe) SSDs

  • Two internal hot-pluggable SATA/PCIe M.2 flash modules

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

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

PCI Express (PCIe) slots (Oracle Server X7-2)
Four PCIe Gen3 slots that accommodate low-profile PCIe cards.

This is a test three.

  • Slots 1 and 2: x16 electrical interface

  • Slot 3: x8 electrical interface

  • One additional internal x8 PCIe slot for use with an optional internal host bus adapter (HBA) card. This internal HBA card is used to control and manage the storage drives.

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

PCI Express (PCIe) slots (Oracle Server X7-2L)
Eleven PCIe Gen3 slots that accommodate low-profile PCIe cards.
  • Slots 1 and 7: x16 electrical interface

  • Slots 1 through 6, and slots 8 through 11: x8 electrical interface

Note -  PCIe slots 1 through 5 are nonfunctional in single-processor systems.

I/O ports (Oracle Server X7-2)
  • One RJ-45 serial management (SER MGT) port

  • One 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) service processor (SP) network management (NET MGT) port

  • One 100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) port, labeled NET 0

  • Two 10/25GbE SFP+ Ethernet ports, labeled NET 1 and NET 2

  • Two 10GBASE-T RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports, labeled NET 1 and NET 2

Note -  The 10/25GbE SFP+ Ethernet ports (NET 1 and NET 2) are the default network ports for the server. When using an SFP+ port, network connectivity is disabled on the 10GBASE-T RJ-45 GbE (NET 1 and NET 2) Ethernet ports.

I/O ports (Oracle Server X7-2L)
  • One RJ-45 serial management (SER MGT) port

  • One 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) service processor (SP) network management (NET MGT) port

  • One 100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) port, labeled NET 0

USB 3.0 ports
One back panel, and one internal.
Service processor (SP)
The server has an integrated service processor (SP), features include:
  • Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) version 5.0

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

  • Support for Ethernet access to the SP through a dedicated 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, included as part of the Oracle Solaris OS starting with Oracle Solaris 11.2, or available as a standalone product for other supported operating systems. Refer to the support matrix for specific information: http://www.oracle.com/goto/ohmp

Power supplies
Two hot-swappable and highly-redundant 1200W power supplies.
Cooling fans (Oracle Server X7-2)
Four 40-mm, hot-swappable fan modules for chassis cooling. Each fan module contains two counter-rotating fan pairs.
Each power supply has its own cooling fans.
Cooling fans (Oracle Server X7-2L)
Four 80-mm, hot-swappable fan modules for chassis cooling. Each fan module contains one pair of counter-rotating fans.
Each power supply has its own cooling fans.
Operating systems and virtualization software
  • Oracle Solaris

  • Oracle Linux

  • Oracle VM

  • Microsoft Windows Server
