Customers of the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5120, T5220, T5140, T5240, and T5440 Servers now have an Assemble-to-Order (ATO) and X-Option for 300GB 10K RPM, 2.5" SAS hard disk drives.
The 300GB drive comes with the largest memory capacity of any disk option that Sun offers in a 2.5" form factor. In a 16-disk configuration, which is available on T5220 and T5240, this new disk drive option allows up to 4.8TB of storage within a compact 2 rack unit (RU) server.
What customers get in this new offering is more storage within their server and more value effectiveness in power consumption and data center space.
The 300 GB SAS hard disk drives are supported by a minimum of Solaris 10 8/07 plus patches or later. These hard disk drives can be used in existing systems and can be mixed with other sized drives.
Both Sun and Fujitsu will jointly sell the 300GB hard disk drives under their respective brands per the APL agreement.
