ABSTRACT
Sun Microsystems, Inc. has expanded its industry-standard, comprehensive product line based on Solaris x86 OS and the AMD Opteron processor, and launched the Sun Fire V20z Server Enterprise Essentials Promotion in Santa Clara, California that can help dramatically reduce customers' total cost of acquisition. Sun's AMD Opteron processor-based solutions run the platinum standard for enterprise operating systems, as well as Linux and Microsoft Windows through Windows Hardware Qualification List certification. Available immediately with the Solaris OS and Java Enterprise System, the Sun Fire V40z outperforms IBM and HP in real world and industry-standard benchmarks. The V40z is expanding the Sun Fire line to include both 2- and 4-way rack-mount AMD Opteron processor-based servers. Sun Java Workstation W11OOz and Sun Java Workstation W2100z build on Sun's number one position in the workstation market and continues Sun's heritage of delivering some of the fastest 64-bit workstations on the market, with the ability to boot three operating systems from the same unit. Meanwhile, Sun Fire V20z Enterprise Essentials Promotions disruptive pricing model is Sun's next bold move to simplify the way computer systems are purchased and maintained.
