Very Cool Sun Servers

OK OK, pun intended with the title.

Anyway, we got these 2 loaner units for a customer PoC that we are doing for Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager.

This is the first time we have encountered any servers other than Dell, HP and IBM, so we had to take a look inside! Check out the wicked 16 banks of ECC RAMs with their own heat sinks!

And the slot load optical drive!

No wonder these babies won the best 1U rack server of the year award! Visually, it can almost rival the XServe. Almost.

Now all is left for us to harness these powers... is to find me some damn power/KVM cords and power them up!
