  • Intel Xeon 8260, 24 core, 2.4 GHz, 165 W

  • Intel Xeon 5218, 16 core, 2.3 GHz, 125 W

  • Intel Xeon 5222, 4 core, 3.8 GHz, 105 W

For the latest information on processor specifications, go to the Oracle x86 servers web site and navigate to the Oracle Server X8-2 or Oracle Server X8-2L page: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/sun-x86/overview/index.html
Memory
(Oracle Server X8-2)
  • Up to 12 16 GB DDR4-2666 registered DIMMs (single rank) per processor

  • Up to 12 32 GB DDR4-2666 registered DIMMs per processor

  • Up to 12 64 GB DDR4-2666 registered or TSV DIMMs per processor

(Oracle Server X8-2L)
  • Up to 12 16 GB DDR4-2666 registered DIMMs (single rank) per processor

  • Up to 12 32 GB DDR4-2666 registered DIMMs per processor

  • Up to 12 64 GB DDR4-2666 registered or TSV DIMMs per processor

Storage Drives (Oracle Server X8-2)
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

Storage Drives (Oracle Server X8-2L)
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.

PCI Express (PCIe) slots (Oracle Server X8-2)
Four PCIe Gen3 slots that accommodate low-profile PCIe cards.
  • 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 X8-2L)
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 X8-2)
  • One RJ-45 serial management (SER MGT) Ethernet port

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

  • One 10/100/1000BASE-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 X8-2L)
  • One RJ-45 serial management (SER MGT) Ethernet port

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

  • One 10/100/1000BASE-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)

    Refer to the server product notes for Oracle ILOM release information.

  • 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)

  • IPMI 2.0-compliant remote management capabilities

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

Management software
Power supplies
Two hot-swappable and highly-redundant 1200W power supplies.
Cooling fans (Oracle Server X8-2)
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 X8-2L)
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
Refer to the server Product Notes for supported OS release information.
