Solaris on Dell... or Lenovo
By ColmSmyth on Dec 07, 2004
I see Jim Grisanzio had the same thought I did when I saw the tag-line that Dell were complaining to Red Hat about the price of their enterprise Linux distro.
But while Dell is urging Red Hat to reduce prices to stay competitive, Dell is also in a competition; I wonder what Lenovo will do now they've super-sized themselves?
I suspect all vendors of commodity PC's, especially servers, are considering how they can add value - and Solaris is one kick-ass differentiator. Who will get there first?
Meanwhile, customers who have been looking to Dell for low-cost x86 servers should make sure they are getting the best value and take a look at the summary of prices on Sun's server page. It's nice to see Sun offering value and transparency of prices, and of course all those servers can run Solaris 10.
