"The world-record performance of Solaris 10 for x86 and the availability of advanced technologies such as Solaris Containers, Predictive Self-Healing and DTrace make Solaris an ideal platform for Egenera's BladeFrame customers," said Tom Goguen, vice president of Software at Sun Microsystems. "Egenera has a reputation for delivering leading-edge utility computing, virtualization and automation capabilities in their BladeFrame systems; their choice of Solaris 10 reaffirms our position that Solaris 10 is the most advanced OS on the planet."
With this announcement, the Egenera BladeFrame provides the ability to simultaneously run Red Hat Linux, SUSE LINUX, Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Solaris 10 on a single system. By enabling customers to repurpose individual Egenera Processing Blade resources across operating systems, Egenera delivers utility computing today while providing the choice and flexibility to run an extensive range of business services.
"Solaris is an important operating system for enterprise datacenters," noted Pete Manca, senior vice president of engineering at Egenera. "We are pleased to support yet another mission-critical OS on our Processing Area Network (PAN) architecture. Moreover, the growing ecosystem of independent software vendors rallying behind Solaris 10 will enable our customers to support more of their enterprise applications on the BladeFrame and derive even greater value from an Egenera investment."
