Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Sun is encouraging the development of Sparc-based Linux systems by offering UltraSparc system boards to what it terms "a select number of system integrators." The company's partners will be able to use the boards, according to Sun VP marketing Marge Breya, to "design high-performance UltraSparc platforms that run the Linux operating system". The systems will be based around Sun's Sparcengine Ultra AXi processor boards, which use UltraSparc-IIi processors. Sun is effectively offering the Linux route via these boards in order to cater for small and medium-sized ISPs, so Linux will to some extent be covering Solaris' rear by catering for the more price-conscious end of the market. The first system integrator to demonstrate a Sparcengine system using Linux is Singapore manufacturer Donovan Systems, which is aiming to push Sparc into education and government as an alternative to NT-based Pentium systems. ®.
