News Facts

Expanding the industry’s most comprehensive family of carrier-grade servers, Oracle today announced the Sun Netra 6000 for the communications industry.
The introduction of the Sun Netra 6000 further extends Oracle’s leadership with the most complete portfolio for the communications industry from carrier-grade servers, storage and IT infrastructure, to mission-critical business and operations support systems and service delivery platforms.
Leveraging the same advanced features of Oracle’s Sun Blade 6000 modular system, including advanced blade networking, simplified management and leading reliability, the Sun Netra 6000 adds carrier-grade qualities such as Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) certification and extended lifecycle support.

Today, the Sun Netra 6000 modular system includes the Sun Netra 6000 AC chassis and the Sun Netra T6340 with UltraSPARC T2+ processors running the Solaris operating system. The system can handle the most demanding workloads, including multi-threaded Web applications and advanced IP-based telco Web services. Additionally, it delivers the highest memory capacity in the industry for blade servers of up to 256 GB.
