Re: Replacement for aged SunFire v490 servers
Date: Fri, 18 Mar 2011 09:39:09 +0100
we have good offer for this machines:
2 machines (x3650 M3), each with:
- 2 x Intel Xeon 4C (Xeon 4C 2.66GHz/1066MHz/12MB) - 64GB RAM (ECC DDR3 1333MHz) - 4x146GB internal HDD (15K 6Gbps SAS, RAID 1/0) - 2 (1 x dual-port HBA) x 8Gb FC - 10Gb eth
Can these two machines be a good replacement for 4 SunFire v490's?
Thank you for your help.
