The Sun Fire E20K server scales up to 36 processors with 72 threads and up to 288GB memory, making it a smart solution for enterprise consolidation and mainframe migration.

Boasting almost double the performance of UltraSPARC IV servers, the Sun Fire E20K allows you to mix and match UltraSPARC IV+, IV, and III processors in the same system for in-chassis upgrades to faster processors. 

RAS and security features increase system uptime, and Uniboard technology across the Sun Fire E4900-E25K product line allows for provisioning of additional resources when needed. The Sun Fire E20K achieves balance by uniting the CPU/Memory Uniboards with an integrated, industry-standard PCI subsystem for outstanding I/O bandwidth.
