Sun Fire V-Series Overview
|The Sun Fire V-Series was announced in 2001 at the same time as the UltraSPARC III processor was introduced. The range includes machines from entry level to mid-range rackmount and cabinet servers. |
Most models were based on Sun's UltraSPARC III and IV CPUs, some models were offered with Intel Xeon processors (x suffix models) and AMD Opteron (z suffix) processors. The z suffix was also used to identify the V880z Visualization Server version of the V880.
Parts, Upgrades and Complete Servers for Sun Fire V-SeriesDespite all servers in the V-Series being beyond their last shipment date from Sun/Oracle, Com-Com continue to supply parts, upgrades and complete servers extending the life of equipment, providing greater ROI and freedom for customers to decide their own budgetary and migration timetables.
With a large inventory of quality Sun V-Series hardware, Com-Com offer immediate availability for most upgrades and even complete systems. Sun qualified sales and engineering professionals can provide help with everything from specification through to installation, configuration and on-going support.
Hardware and Software Maintenance for SunFire V-SeriesWith Premier Support for Hardware from Oracle ending between March 2011 and April 2014 on the V-Series Server (see table below for dates by model) planning now to ensure continuity of support is essential. Com-Com offer a high quality alternative support option and with typically 40% off Sun/Oracle support costs, the savings from Com-Com are very attractive as well...
We've done the logistics planning, so you can continue to use your systems and work to your own timescales from replacement/migration. We are supporting a large SunFire V-Series base already and are committing to extend support on certain models up to April 2021.
