"The close cooperation between Sun and Fujitsu underscores the commitment that each company has for the Solaris Operating Environment. Sun and Fujitsu plan to work even closer together, with the goal of extending the Solaris OE's leadership as the premiere Operating Environment for business and mission critical computing," said Mr. Anil Gadre, Vice President and General Manager of Solaris Software, Sun Microsystems.
"The richness of the application portfolio on the Solaris Operating Environment and its broad-based match to today's computing environments has made it the ideal choice for enterprise computing," said Mr. Takashi Aoki, Group President of Fujitsu's Computer Systems Group.
"This new release will allow us to help our customers improve the performance of their applications through even better utilization of available resources."
Fujitsu is committed to meeting the needs of business-critical computing in the data center, particularly for mission-critical applications. The scalability, availability, manageability, and security improvements in the Solaris 9 Operating Environment will enable large database and financial applications to be more easily managed and tailored to system resources.
Fujitsu will also add value, by offering its latest "five nines" high-availability products, such as PRIMECLUSTER software to ensure the highest levels of service for broadband and mission-critical computing.
The Solaris 9 Operating Environment combined with the PRIMEPOWER family of products will allow customers to prioritize available resources in their IT infrastructure while ensuring optimal uptime performance and minimized costs.
