|Sun puts Solaris on HP servers|
SUN AND HP have agreed to a new deal which will see Solaris offered on HP's servers.
HP said will bundle and support the Sun operating system on several of its ProLiant and blade server models, alongside Windows Server and Linux. The companies also plan to work on future server models equipped with both Solaris and OpenSolaris.
"The endorsement of Solaris on HP ProLiant dramatically expands the available market for Solaris on x86 servers, building on the largest installed-base of any commercial UNIX and Linux distribution," said Sun executive vice president of systems John Fowler.
"The growing demand and ecosystem around Solaris helps to further propel its adoption, along with breakthrough technologies like ZFS and DTrace, and outstanding operational economics and market-leading support for thousands of ISVs and applications." µ
