[Home]SunFire E25000 (E25K)

The SunFire? E25000 (E25K) is Sun's largest UltraSPARC system. It seems to use the same chassis as the E15K and E20K. It is very similar to the E20K, except that the E20K is a little less powerful.

Linux Notes: I am not aware of anyone who has tried to run Linux on an E25K.

The Aurora Project would be happy to accept an E25K donation.
