Value, Availability, and Manageability
The Sun Fire V440 server is a data center-class, entry-level server that is powered by up to four 1.593-GHz UltraSPARC IIIi processors. Features such as six PCI slots, two 10/100/1000 Mb/s Ethernet ports, up to four disk drives, and 32 GB of memory prove the rack-optimized Sun Fire V440 server has the capacity to meet the needs of compute-intensive applications. The Sun Fire V440 server also contains high-availability and manageability features in a compact, 4U package. Hot-plug, front-accessible disk drives; redundant hot-plug power supplies (with independent cords); and a System Configuration Card that permits easy and quick identity transfer enhance the Sun Fire V440 server’s uptime. Easily visible system and component LEDs provide serviceability features that enable quick diagnosis and repairs, while the system’s Advanced Lights Out Manager (ALOM) provides remote management and diagnostic capability.
