Sun to support AMP plus Linux

Money talks

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

OSCON Sun Microsystems is putting the "L" back into LAMP with plans to support customers running the open-source Apache, MySQL and Perl or PHP (AMP) stack on Linux.

The company said it plans paid, enterprise-level support for AMP on Linux in the fourth-quarter of 2008, in addition to supporting AMP on its preferred platform, of course, Solaris. Support of AMP on Solaris servers is due this quarter.

Pricing has yet to be determined for either, and follows the launch in February 2007 of Solaris + AMP that saw Sun support AMP in development environments on Solaris. Joe McCabe, Sun's web-tier product manager, told The Reg Sun planned to support other operating systems running the AMP combo. Windows is currently in the pipeline.

While Sun might prefer customers running AMP on Solaris, the idea is Sun can still get to support those running AMP on competing operating systems.

Sun, meanwhile, announced it planned to open source the core components of its Java System Web Server 7.0 and Sun Java System Web Proxy technologies under a BSD license to the Web Sack sub project of its OpenSolaris Community. Code will be released in the third quarter.®
