  • Summary: The Sun Fire X2270 is an impressive entry into the Nehalem-based server market. Sun's x64-based hardware has been superlative for the past few years, and these new servers are the latest in a line of solid server platforms. Leveraging the surprising power of the Nehalem architecture, the Sun Fire X2270 should find a home just about anywhere — assuming that Oracle's acquisition of Sun doesn't rock the boat.
  • Pros: Good value, good performance
  • Cons: Single power supply, only a pair of NICs

  • Conclusion: The X2270 delivers a good rack-based specification centred round Intel's new 5500 processors but power consumption for a 1U HPC node is high.
