Fujitsu Ltd and Sun Microsystems Inc. launched the new lineup of co-developed servers that hold the promise of reshaping the computing market by delivering mainframe-class reliability with open systems advantages.

The new servers, based on the SPARC architecture and running the Solaris 10 OS, are touted to be the fastest SPARC servers, and will be marketed by both companies and affiliates under the "SPARC Enterprise" product brand.

The SPARC Enterprise server lineup is the culmination of over two years of joint development between Fujitsu and Sun, building on their 20-year partnership. The new servers address the growing customer need to maximize system utilization by offering an array of highly granular partitioning and domaining technologies.

The systems are designed for customers requiring highly scaleable, reliable servers, and needing to achieve increased system utilization and performance through virtualization. The servers leverage the combination of Fujitsu's expertise in mission-critical computing technologies and high-performance processor design, and Sun's expertise in open, scaleable, network computing.

"These new systems help customers tackle the world's most challenging computing problems, whether in the back office or in high-performance computing," said John Fowler, executive vice president of Sun's systems group. "And they achieve this performance while delivering mainframe reliability with the unmatched virtualization capabilities that Solaris customers expect."

"The combination of Fujitsu's mission-critical computing technology and Sun's Solaris in the new SPARC Enterprise server line-up, enables us to deliver maximum business value to our customers, "said Chiaki Ito, corporate senior executive vice president, Fujitsu.
