Sun's UltraSPARC T2 goes flame-retardant

Netra: Now with 64 threads

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Congratulations go out to Sun Microsystems for doing its best to make a new NEBS box seem exciting. Sun will ship you a NEBS server that supports 64 software threads, don't ya know.

Telcos will now find the Sun Netra T5220 server. This system run on Sun's UltraSPARC T2 processor, which has 8 cores and supports 8 threads per core. (You can fight amongst yourselves about Sun's claims.) The new server lives up to NEBS (Network Equipment Building Level) 3 standards, so you can throw an earthquake or a blowtorch at it.

The 2U Netra T5220 is just a modified version of the regular T5220 Sun shipped last October. The Netra box has the NEBS bits and ships in a 20-inch deep to keep telecommunications customers happy.

The new box is available now, starting at $14,995.

Sun also used this Netra announcement to remind customers that it plans to ship Xeon-based Netra gear next quarter. ®
