Oracle’s Sun Server X3-2L system is
the perfect integration of compute
and storage in a single two rack unit
(2U) enclosure for clustered
databases and virtualized business
applications. It is the industry’s
unique and scalable enterprise-class,
two-socket Sun x86 server. This
compact server offers outstanding
flexibility with three chassis options
and the most internal storage capability. It also supports large flash storage
configurations that accelerate I/O intensive application performance, increase
system reliability and reduce power consumption.

databases and virtualized business
applications with up to 37.2 TB of
disk storage or 9.4 TB of flash
Product Overview
The Sun Server X3-2L, powered by the highest performing Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product
family CPUs, is the ideal system for clustered databases and virtualized business applications.
This server is available in three flexible chassis configurations and offers superior scalability with
more than 37 TB of disk storage for the most demanding cluster environments. System
performance and power efficiency are maximized with flash storage options that deliver high I/O
performance and reduced energy consumption.
 Highest application performance
and power savings with low voltage
8 GB and 16 GB DIMMs running at
true1600 MHz
 Largest network bandwidth with four
auto-sensing 10GbE ports onboard
 Simplified systems and cloud-ready
life-cycle management
 Run Oracle software with best
performance, reliability and TCO
The Sun Server X3-2L generational improvements include up to 9.4 TB of flash storage to boost
performance for clustered database applications and 2x I/O bandwidth with six PCIe 3.0 slots for
demanding enterprise collaboration workloads. Another improvement is 10x the network
bandwidth with the integration of four 10GbE ports, which reduces cabling, increases data
throughput, and saves scarce PCIe slots for other peripherals. Due to its use of low voltage
DDR3-1600 MHz memory DIMMs and 80 PLUS Platinum power supplies, this server is more
energy efficient. In addition, an increase of 33 percent in processor cores and threads produces
better performance in the same 2U form factor, making this server the densest and fastest
performing in its class.
All Oracle servers ship with full function server management tools at no additional cost. Oracle
Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) utilizes industry-standard protocols to provide secure and
comprehensive local and remote management. Oracle ILOM features also include power
management and monitoring, fault detection and notification. The integrated Oracle System
Assistant guides system administrators through rapid server deployment, firmware updates,
hardware configuration and operating system installation with Oracle certified hardware drivers.
Oracle’s Premier Support customers have access to My Oracle Support and multi-server
management tools in Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center. Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops
Center, a critical component of Oracle’s application-to-disk system management tool, coordinates
servers, storage, and networking for a complete cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Oracle
Enterprise Manager Ops Center also features an Automated Service Request capability, whereby
potential issues are detected and reported to Oracle’s support center without user intervention,
assuring the maximum service levels and simplified support.
Sun x86 systems are the best enterprise x86 platforms for running Oracle software. They provide
optimal performance and reliability based on an integrated and fully supported Oracle stack, as
well as everything you need for a cloud deployment. Every Sun x86 system comes complete with
virtualization, choice of operating systems, cloud provisioning, and Oracle's unique applicationto-disk management environment—all at no extra charge. As a result, Sun x86 systems deliver up
to 50 percent cost savings over three years when compared to similarly configured multi-vendor
configurations.1 Sun x86 systems also serve as a key building block for Oracle's engineered
systems, such as Oracle Exadata, which have achieved a 10x performance gain through
integration and optimization.
