How Much Do YOU Know About Your Server?

Before you run off half-cocked and purchase one of Oracle's Sun servers from some guy selling them out the back of his Escalade, you should be armed with three types of information:

What Servers Are Available?

This handy-dandy tool reveals just the right amount of information about Sun servers, letting you drill down at a pace that the average sysadmin with an IQ of 160 can absorb. Three clicks and you'll have all the info you need.

Which Version of What Software Runs on Whose Server?

Well, almost all the info you need. OTN's Software Stacks list the versions of the OS, firmware, systems management tools, virtualization technology, diagnostic tools, and middleware that runs on each of Oracle SPARC T-series and M-series servers, as well as Sun Blade and Sun Carrier-Grade servers.

What Support Is Offered for Each Server and for How Long?

Even if you are buying your servers from Hugo in the Escalade, you will want to know what type of support Oracle offers and for long we'll offer that support. This page spells that out for not just our servers, but all our hardware. You can also get to this page from the leftmost column of the Systems Community Home Page.
