Fujitsu Ltd and Sun Microsystems Inc have unveiled a new line-up of co-developed servers that will be jointly manufactured by both companies in the US, Japan and the UK. The systems sold by both companies will be identical, with only the branding differences and, more important for decision-makers, with service delivery differentiation.
The new servers, based on the SPARC (r) architecture and running the Solaris (TM) 10 operating system (OS), are the fastest SPARC servers ever, and will be marketed by both companies and affiliates under the `SPARC Enterprise' product brand.
The systems are ideal for customers — typically financial services, telecom, data centre and Internet infrastructure companies — requiring highly scaleable, reliable servers. Availability, system utilisation and performance are key areas and the latter areas are optimised through virtualisation. The SPARC Enterprise server line-up is the culmination of over two years of joint development between Fujitsu and Sun, building on their 20-year strategic relationship.
The new servers address the growing customer need to maximise system utilisation by offering an array of highly granular partitioning and domaining technologies. The SPARC Enterprise servers are also designed to ensure minimal downtime.
