Latest UltraSPARC servers certified for Ubuntu

 

Well its official, as of the Friday before Thanksgiving,  the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5220 Server (pictured above) and its little brother the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5120 Server were certified by Canonical on their latest release, Ubuntu 7.10 (nee "Gutsy Gibbon").

At the time of the T5220/5120 launch last month, Gutsy had not yet been released but I gave a heads up that certification would be coming.  Well its here

These new systems, based on the T2 processors (8 cores x 8 threads = 64 threads per chip), are uber-beefed up versions of the T1000/T2000 cool-thread servers that Canonical originally certified on.  To learn more about these new systems check out a collection of blogs here.  And if you want to try one for free for 60 days, you can sign up here.

Pau for now...

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
