Description Technical Specs Extended Information
Extreme optimization, utilization, reliability, and investment protection in the economies of a rack-optimized footprint.

The Sun Fire™ V490 server, powered by the new UltraSPARC® IV+ processor and Solaris™ OS, offers faster performance in a low-cost, low density footprint. This server delivers up to 5 times the performance of UltraSPARC III
servers, and nearly double the performance of UltraSPARC IV servers in the same footprint without additional power/cooling requirements. As such, it provides greater value out of existing Sun Fire servers now, and assures long systems life by protecting IT investments over time. With up to four UltraSPARC IV+ Chip Multithreading (CMT) processors executing
eight concurrent threads and up to 32 GB of memory in a dense, rack-optimized, 5-RU, 24-in.-deep enclosure, the Sun Fire V490 server delivers compute density with enterprise-class levels of throughput at a low-cost server price.

Because of Sun’s industry-leading investment protection technologies, you can save costs over the life cycle of your hardware and applications. Sun’s commitment to 100% application binary compatibility means that there is no disruption to your existing software infrastructure, as your Solaris applications just continue to run. Furthermore, for the first time in the industry, a 4-socket server supports mixed generations and speeds of UltraSPARC IV+ and UltraSPARC IV CPU/memory boards in the same system, allowing you to maintain existing investments while seamlessly upgrading your system with faster processors.

Leveraging advanced Solaris 10 OS capabilities such as Solaris Containers, the Sun Fire V490 server is an ideal platform to run multiple applications in an isolated and secure environment for projects such as enterprise messaging consolidation. The Sun Fire V490 server delivers significant productivity gains to address ever-demanding applications such as Application Serving, Business Processing, Database Services, IT Infrastructure, Application Development, Collaboration, and compute-intensive Scientific Engineering.
