All Equipment is Available for Lease / Purchase / Short-Term Rental

The reliable, scalable, rack-ready server powered by UltraSPARC[tm]-III technology. For service provision, e-commerce, financial services, branch office automation - any function that requires exceptional power and reliability in a compact, rackable package - the Sun Fire[tm] 280R server is an ideal solution. It's powered by up to two high-performance UltraSPARC[tm] -III processors and features the RAS capabilities Sun[tm] servers are known for, including redundant hot-swap power supplies with independent power cords, hot-plug power subsystems, and front-accessible drives. Its fibre-channel hard disk drive backplane offers software-mirrored hot-plug boot drives. Plus, it provides Remote System Control for simple, lights-out management. And with its 4U form factor, the Sun Fire 280R server fits neatly in standard 19-inch racks - perfect for any environment where space is at a premium.
