Sun Blade 6048 Chassis


the sun blade 6048 is designed to scale from a departmental cluster to PetaScale Computing, and it's packaged as an integrated product. Its radical unibody chassis/rack design saves space and weight (~500 lbs less per rack when compared to conventional chassis and rack combinations).

  • Up to 48 Sun Blade 6000 family server modules: AMD Opteron, Intel Xeon, and Sun UltraSPARC
  • Passive midplane for ultra high-speed interconnects such as Quad Data Rate InfiniBand
  • Eight 5600 - 8400W power supply modules
  • 96 PCIe (1.1 and 2.0) ExpressModule (EM) slots and 32 redundant rear fan modules
  • Its Sun Blade Independent I/O provides the highest I/O throughput per chassis at 30.72Tbps and is the first blade based on an open PCI-E Industry standard I/O architecture. Support for PCIe 1.1 and 2.0 enables this chassis to support leading networking technologies such as Quad Data Rate (QDR) InfiniBand.
