The Sun Fire T2000 server (code named Ontario) is a system engineered by Sun Microsystems for applications including Web 2.0 and databasing.[1] Part of the Sun Fire line, the T2000 was among the first servers to leverage Sun's CoolThreads processing technology, which improves the energy-efficiency of systems.

Introduced in December 2005,[2] the Sun T2000 reached its end of life (EOL) in November 2009.

The T2000 is powered by a four-core, six-core or eight-core UltraSPARC T1 processor, supports up to 64 gigabytes of system memory using 16 DIMM slots, and up to 584 gigabytes of internal storage with Serial attached SCSI drives.[3] InfoWorld noted that the system is light for its class.[4] It is 3.5 inches tall, 16.7 inches wide, 24.4 inches deep and weighs 40 pounds.[5]

Operating Systems[edit]

The T2000 was offered by Sun preloaded with the Solaris 10 operating system.[6]
