Re: Replacement for aged SunFire v490 servers

Hi Greg,

we have good offer for this machines:

2 machines (x3650 M3), each with:
- 2 x Intel Xeon 4C (Xeon 4C 2.66GHz/1066MHz/12MB)
- 64GB RAM (ECC DDR3 1333MHz)
- 4x146GB internal HDD (15K 6Gbps SAS, RAID 1/0)
- 2 (1 x dual-port HBA) x 8Gb FC
- 10Gb eth

Can these two machines be a good replacement for 4 SunFire v490's?


Thank you for your help.

Regards,
Marko
