Sun Sets New World Records With Solaris


SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: SUNW) has released new servers powered by the Solaris Operating System (OS), which delivers customers unbroken binary compatibility, thus ensuring that existing applications will run on the new UltraSPARC IV+ processors without the need to re-code or re-compile.

According to industry analyst reports, Sun has gained market share for four consecutive quarters. SPARC-based systems represent a significant portion of that growth and the new 1.95GHz and 2.1 GHz UltraSPARC IV+ processors demonstrate Sun’s ongoing commitment to improving the performance of the SPARC architecture and the protection of customer investment.

“SPARC, with Solaris, is the engine that drives our server business, and we’re committed to continual improvements on our SPARC-based products,” said John Fowler, executive vice president, Systems Group, Sun Microsystems. “The growing demand for UltraSPARC IV+ servers has helped Sun build tremendous market momentum in our systems line-up, and steal significant market share at the expense of our competitors.”

Sun Fire UltraSPARC IV+ servers now own over 75 world-record benchmarks.
