Sun and Intel announce agreement
Posted on 23-Jan-2007 15:00. | Tags Filed under: News.

Sun Microsystems, Inc. and Intel Corporation have announced a strategic alliance centered on Intelís endorsement of the Solaris Operating System (OS) and Sunís commitment to deliver a family of enterprise and telecommunications servers and workstations based on Intel Xeon processors.

The scope of the agreement spans Solaris, Java and NetBeans software and Intel Xeon microprocessors, as well as other Intel and Sun enterprise-class technologies. The alliance also includes joint engineering, design and marketing efforts.

As part of this announcement, Intel is embracing Solaris as a mainstream OS and the UNIX OS for Intel Xeon processor-based servers. Intel also endorses Sunís Solaris, Java and NetBeans products and will actively support the OpenSolaris and open Java communities from which they continue to evolve.

Sun is committed to complement its current offerings with platforms based on Intel Architecture optimised for Solaris beginning in the first half of 2007. The company plans to deliver a family of Intel-based systems with uni-, dual- and multi-processor based servers and workstations supporting Solaris, Windows and Linux. Intel and Sun will also collaborate around greater than four processor scale-up systems optimised for the Solaris OS.

Intel has signed a Solaris OEM agreement enabling Intel to distribute and support the Solaris OS to its customers as market opportunities arise, consistent with Intelís product strategies.

Solaris adoption will be driven by the Intel Xeon processorís significant market presence and in turn Solaris will give Intel a broader presence in the datacentre, virtualisation and high performance computing space. The two companies will also work together on the rapid adoption of key enterprise-class Intel and Sun technologies for Sunís systems based on Intel Xeon processors including Intel Virtualization Technology, Intel IO Acceleration Technology (IOAT) and Intel Demand Based Switching.
