System Architecture
The Sun EnterpriseTM 2 server is highly leveraged from Sun’s successful UltraTM desktop family. Both
product lines incorporate the same high-performance multiprocessing design, advanced CPU, networking,
and I/O components, and compact packaging. To address workgroup server requirements, the Sun
Enterprise 2 server includes software for ease of installation and system management, network
administration, volume management, tape backup, and connectivity for heterogeneous environments.
The design goals of the Sun Enterprise 2 server were to use the latest technologies to create a
high-performance, highly reliable platform for workgroup applications. This new-generation system
inherits and expands upon the modularity, expandability, and configurability that have been the trademark
of all SunTM products. The continued commitment to the SPARCTM architecture provides compatibility with
the largest installed base of networked systems. The SPARC architecture also enables the 64-bit
UltraSPARCTM processor and boosts performance.
The following sections summarize the major components of the Sun Enterprise 2 server.
UltraSPARC Processors
• The UltraSPARC-II is Sun’s latest generation of the SPARC family and the second generation of 64-bit
UltraSPARC chips. It utilizes the latest 0.35-micron technology (versus the 0.5-micron technology used
in UltraSPARC-I), which shrinks the die size. This reduced die size is the key to the UltraSPARC-II
CPU’s higher clock rates and increased performance. This smaller die size also enables the
UltraSPARC-II to operate at a core voltage of 2.5 volts, rather than 3.3 volts as in the UltraSPARC-I.
This lower voltage reduces power consumption and allows the chip to operate at higher frequencies
without increasing total power requirements or heat dissipation, both major design issues in today’s
high performance systems.
• Each UltraSPARC processor is mounted on an independent module that plugs directly into the system
board. This modular design facilitates easy system expansion (adding additional CPUs), processor
upgrades (to next-generation UltraSPARC processors), and system service.
• To ensure proper response to an over-temperature condition, each module has an independent sensor
that can be used to issue both warning and shutdown signals.
• The processor module retains complete backward compatibility with SPARC-V8-compliant
applications.
• The 64-bit UltraSPARC processor includes on-chip 16-KB data and 16-KB instruction caches.
Just the Facts
May 1999
System Architecture
• The Sun Enterprise 2 server accommodates up to two SPARC-V9-compliant, 64-bit UltraSPARC-II
processor modules. The UltraSPARC-I processors operate at 300- or 400-MHz each with 2 MB of
external cache.
High-bandwidth, Low-latency UPA Interconnect
Sun completely redesigned the memory interface for the Ultra product line, in order to take advantage of
the huge performance gains of the UltraSPARC processor. The result is the new Ultra port architecture
(UPA), which is used in all Ultra systems and provides high-performance access to memory.
• UPA cache-coherent interconnect between processor, memory, and I/O subsystems
• Packet-switched for low-latency memory access and precise interrupt processing
Unlike conventional cache-coherent systems, which use a globally shared, snooping address bus, the
UPA interconnect relies on point-to-point packet-switched messages from a centralized system
controller to maintain cache coherence. Packet switching provides much better bus bandwidth
utilization by removing the latencies commonly associated with pure transaction-based designs. It
permits minimum latency on cache misses, and effective pipelining in the interconnect allows
maximum utilization of address, datapath, and main memory.
• 100-MHz operation
• Adjustable memory timing to ensure near-constant latencies and bandwidth across the range of bus
frequencies
• High-speed memory transfers of 1.6 GB per second peak throughput for 300- or 400-MHz systems
• Sustained throughput of 720 MB per second
• Wider paths to memory (576 bits, four times wider than the SPARCserver 20) handle a large data traffic
volume
Memory
• Supports 64 MB to 2 GB using 5-volt DRAM DIMMs with 60-nanosecond access time
• 16 memory slots
• 32-MB, 64-MB, and 128-MB DIMMs available
DIMMs must be added in sets of four. It is recommended that each set be the same size, as the largest
DIMM of the set will be treated as if its capacity were equivalent to the smallest DIMM.
• Uses same DIMMs as the SPARCserver 20 for investment protection
• Data moves between memory and the UPA crossbar switch buffers over an error checking and
correcting (ECC) protected datapath.
• Four-way interleaving
Fast Ethernet
• Uses high-speed, on-board 100-Mbit per second IEEE 802.3 Fast Ethernet (100BASE-T) for fast access
to network resources
• Uses twisted-pair Category 5 interfaces through an RJ45 connector
• Works with existing cabling; downward compatible with 10 Mbit per second (10BASE-T) through
autosensing, for deployment in existing environments
• Media independent interface (MII) allows use with ThickNet, twisted pair, ThinNet, or Fiber interfaces
Just the Facts

Fibre Channel, external disk arrays, printer interfaces, and hundreds of third-party SBus cards
• Offers high-performance, 133 MB per second peak bandwidth
• Compatible with existing 32-bit SBus for investment protection; supports SPARCserver 20 expansion
cards
Compact Packaging
• Supports up to two 1-inch hard drives using single-connector drive brackets, one internal 12-speed,
5.25-inch, 644-MB SCSI CD-ROM, and one floppy drive
• Easy access to peripherals for upgrades or servicing
• Easily rack-mountable; fits into any standard 19-inch computer equipment rack using third-party
rack-mount enclosures such as the Sphinx rack-mount chassis available from Artecon, Inc. or
SunStoreSM

Advantages of Solaris 7 over Solaris 2.6 Operating Environment
The Solaris 7 base operating environment delivers the following major enhancements over the Solaris 2.6
operating environment:
• Data center-class reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS)
Data center-class RAS features that can provide greater system stability and lower system downtime by
allowing customers to add, remove, or replace defective hardware without rebooting the system.
• Higher performance
A complete 64-bit computing environment provides greater capacity, precision, and performance. By
increasing capacity from 32-bits to 64-bits, customers can realize significantly better performance for
certain functions. The 64-bit virtual addressing and file system allows greater application flexibility
enabling the creation of a new class of applications. 64-bit applications unleash the full power of Sun
systems based on UltraSPARCTM technology. Some newly architected applications offer a performance
boost of 10-100 over customers’ existing systems.
• Improved scalability
The complete 64-bit kernel also provides increased scalability by enabling access to more system
resources, by allowing many more applications to be consolidated onto a single server that utilizes the
Solaris software and to handle much larger problem sets, and by adding more capacity to existing
hardware.
The benefits of improved scalability are not limited to servers. The Solaris 7 operating environment
enables a new application environment for desktop users. No model is too complex or too large to
visualize and solve as a whole.
• Greater ease of use
The easy-to-use, Web-based installation, GUI-based text/voice notes, and process manager make
Solaris software easy to install and use. Command line entries are no longer required for some of the
most often used desktop utilities.
• Comprehensive global product
The Solaris operating environment includes support for the euro currency symbol, complex text formats
for Arabic, Thai, and Hebrew languages, and support for the development of multilingual applications.
• Software investment protection
Complete binary compatibility enables all of today’s Solaris operating environment certified 32-bit
applications to continue running on the Solaris 7 operating environment without modification.

An updated version of the JDKTM 1.1.6 (JavaTM Development Kit), with software-enhanced
JavaTM virtual machine and optimizing “Just-In-Time” (JIT) compiler technologies, provides
significantly improved scalability. These benefits will be significantly enhanced in the JDK 1.2
software version (currently available in early access from the Web). The JDK 1.2 enhancements include
a highly tuned, multithreaded VM architecture with faster thread synchronization, a memory system
with generational garbage collection, and a highly optimizing JIT compiler.

Configuration Guidelines
• Memory
– All DIMMs supported in the SPARCserver 20 and Sun Enterprise 1 server are also supported in the
Sun Enterprise 2 server. The Sun Enterprise 2 server requires memory to be installed in like groups
of four per bank. If additional memory is required, order SPARCserver 20 or Sun Enterprise 1
memory options to obtain additional like DIMMs.
• Disk
– Internal single-connector fast SCSI-2 disks from the SPARCserver 20 are supported in the Sun
Enterprise 2 server but require a shift of the plastic bracket. Two plastic brackets come with the
Upgrade kit.
– The 1-inch fast SCSI-2 and fast/wide SCSI-2 disks from the Sun Enterprise 1 works in the
Sun Enterprise 2 server.
– Disk performance is limited by the performance of the transferred disk.
– The internal floppy drive can be moved to the Sun Enterprise 2 server system from SPARCserver 20
or Sun Enterprise 1 systems.
• AUI
– The Sun Enterprise 2 server has an MII connector in place of the AUI connector. Customers need to
order an MII-AUI adapter if the environment requires connection to an external transceiver through
an AUI connection (see the “Options” section).
• SCSI
• CD-ROM and tape devices
– The only internal CD-ROM and tape devices that can be moved to the Sun Enterprise 2 system are
those from Sun Enterprise 1 systems.
Just the Facts
May 1999
Upgrades
– The SCSI connector of the Sun Enterprise 2 server is a wide SCSI-2 connector (68 pin). The
customers need to order a wide-to-narrow SCSI adapter cable if external narrow SCSI devices are to
be connected to the system (see the “Options” section).

Glossary
Bus in which a transaction is normally implemented in an automatic
fashion. Simple and easy to construct, a circuit-switched bus is often less
efficient than comparable packet-switched buses. SBus is a
circuit-switched bus.
ECC
Error checking and correction. ECC code is used to verify the integrity of
data and can be used to correct some data errors.
FastEthernet
IEEE standard for 100-Mbit Ethernet. Also called 100BASE-T.
Fault-resistant
Systems that are fault-resistant are able to withstand and recover from
many types of system problems and offer less than 100 percent uptime.
Fault-tolerant
Systems that are fault-tolerant are able to withstand and recover from any
system problem and offer 100 percent uptime. These systems are
typically much more expensive that comparable fault-resistant systems.
Hot plug
A hot-plug component can be removed, replaced, and automatically
configured into the system without having to shut down or reboot the
system.
Interleaved memory
Memory organization in which RAM chips are divided into banks.
Access is arranged so that a single typical request is serviced by all banks
simultaneously.
IPXTM/SPX
NetWare’s proprietary protocol stack, which provides basic connectivity
between clients and servers and supports higher level services such as
file- and print-sharing and remote administration.
MBus
The circuit-switched multiprocessor bus used in the SPARCserverTM 20.
Multiprocessing (MP)
Processing that runs concurrently on multiple CPUs, providing better
performance and lowering latency. Multiprocessing systems are judged
on the efficiency and linearity with which resources are allocated across a
wide range of workloads. A system with a linear multiprocessing factor
is said to be scalable in that system resources are not wasted and
performance is predictable given the workload and hardware resources.
NFSTM
Network File System. Sun’s distributed computing file system, providing
heterogeneous data sharing. NFS, in conjunction with NIS+, AutoFS,
CacheFSTM, and volume management, provides the user with automatic
data location, navigation, and access over wide-area networks. The data
appears instantly on the user’s desktop, even if it is stored on a system in
another city.
NIS+
Network information services plus. Naming service used as a data
repository for network and system management information.
ONC+TM
Sun’s open systems distributed computing environment Provides
heterogeneous data access through services, facilities, and APIs. Includes
file and printer sharing, data exchange, remote procedure call, naming
service, and several other file system technologies.

Glossary
Circuit-switched bus
A bus in which information is transmitted in small, fixed-sized units.
Often associated with the use of split transactions. UPA is a
packet-switched bus.
Parity
Parity is a simple technique used to verify the integrity of data.
PPP
Point-to-point protocol. Provides users with the full set of Internet and
ONC services through low-cost modems and phone connections.
RAS
Reliability, availability, and serviceability. Reliability is a measure of the
likelihood that problems will occur. A highly reliable system will have
few problems. Once a problem occurs, availability is the measure of how
the system protects the user from being adversely effected by the
problem. Serviceability is a measure of how easy it is to repair the
problem.
SBus
High-performance IEEE I/O interconnect for options such as disk
expansion and networking cards.
TPC/IP
Transmission control protocol/Internet protocol. Most widely used
transport stack in the world.
TPC-C
A database throughput benchmark that is representative of on-line
transaction processing (OLTP) and decision support system (DSS)
database usage. Results are stated as transactions per minute and TPC-Cs
per dollar.
UPA
UltraTM port architecture. A high-speed, crossbar-oriented,
packet-switched motherboard interconnect.
V9
Version 9 of the SPARCTM definition.
