Beijing (China) – Intel and Sun demonstrated a Xeon 5100-based server running Sun’s Solaris operating system.
While the demonstration is significant for the industry as Sun and Intel never have been what we would call friends, Sun decided to ignore the event in the U.S. and not to release any extra information. A company representative told TG Daily that the demonstration was just a showcase of products that are in the works. More information would be provided when Sun is actually ready to announce Intel-based products.
In January of this year, Sun announced that it will be offering a “complete line” of Intel-based 1P, 2P, 4P and 8P servers. First systems are expected to debut towards the end of the first half of this year.
