The Sun and Intel Alliance
SANTA CLARA, Calif. September 25, 2007 Sun Microsystems, Inc. introduced its first quad-core x64 (x86, 64-bit) systems, including the world’s smallest four-socket x64 server — which delivers up to twice the expandability and compute power as other servers, yet is half the size. The Sun Fire X4450 and Sun Fire X4150 servers, powered by Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors, enable customers to solve critical problems in the datacenter by offering more performance, higher density, and better power efficiency than competitive systems in the market today. Both servers also give customers a choice of operating systems, running the Solaris Operating System (OS), Windows, Linux or VMware, with the flexibility to deploy a broad range of applications.
John Fowler, Executive Vice President, heads the discussion and Q&A.
