The 12-processor Sun Fire 4800 will be a mainframe-class machine geared for application-, compute-, and database-server applications. It will come in a 19-inch rack-mount or desktop configuration. At the high end, the Star Fire 6800 will scale up to 24 processors and target OLTP, large database, data warehousing, and data-mining applications, sources said.
