12-Way Sun Server Built for Harsh Environments
Newest Netra features 900MHz UltraSPARC III chips and up to 96GB of memory.Sun Microsystems Inc. on Thursday rolled out the latest in its line of Netra servers for the telecommunications industry, the 12-way Netra 1280, which features 900MHz UltraSPARC III chips and up to 96GB of memory. The Netra 1280 is the only 12-way server that has received NEBS (Network Equipment Building Standard) Level 3 Certification, a key standard for telecommunications servers that often are housed in "physical, harsh environments," said Steve Campbell, vice president of marketing for Suns Enterprise Systems Group.
"Sometimes these servers are housed in some hut in the middle of nowhere," exposed to such natural dangers as flooding and earthquakes, Campbell said. "Theyre not going to sit in a data center with a controlled environment."
