Hardware Sun Microsystems, Inc. has significantly expanded its industry-standard, comprehensive product line based on Solaris x86 OS and the AMD Opteron processor, and announced the Sun Fire V20z Server Enterprise Essentials Promotion that can help dramatically reduce customers' total cost of acquisition over three years. With today's announcements, Sun is offering customers leadership and flexibility virtually unmatched by IBM, HP or Dell through industry-standard technologies that lead on price/performance, and Sun's complete spectrum of services and solutions. Sun's AMD Opteron processor-based solutions run the platinum standard for enterprise operating systems (OS) —Solaris, as well as Linux and Microsoft Windows through Windows Hardware Qualification List (WHQL) certification.

"Sun has established clear differentiation in the x86 market by offering Solaris x86 on AMD Opteron processors. This gives them an opportunity to take a strong position in the over $22.5B x86 systems market," said Vernon Turner, group vice president, IDC. "Initial data indicates very strong price/performance relative to other operating systems by taking advantage of the reliability and scalability features of Solaris and AMD's Opteron processor speed".
