Sun is doing it best to make hay from the Gartner Group's recommendation to ditch Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS).

It's announced a 37 per cent price cut for iPlanet Web Server, and again touted its migration services that let Microsoft defectors run their ASP code unmodified.

The new offer brings the list price of iPlanet down to under $1,000 per CPU, and lasts until the end of March 2002. Full details are at the iPlanet site, here.

Gartner named iPlanet as one of the most likely migration candidates to IIS in its report last month that roasted Microsoft for failing to cope with security concerns. It wasn't that IIS had suddenly got worse, but Gartner analyst John Pescatore had lost faith with Microsoft's ability to keep the system secure. ®
