reviews of Sun Ultra 24
Workstation have appeared since I wrote
days ago about the availability of this new Intel-based workstation.
InfoWorld's Paul Venezia examined the new workstation and ran a slew of tests. Sun Ultra 24 came out with flying colors on each occasion. According to Paul, "At first blush, I figured the Ultra 24 to be just another small, workstation-class system that would be good for those who need a little extra horsepower from time to time, but aren't running high-end apps that need a full-blown workstation. After putting it through its paces, I'm thinking that it just might fit both bills. Don't let the size and single-CPU nature of the Ultra 24 fool you -- there's a lot of power in that little box."
eWEEK's Frank Ohlhorst also put the Ultra 24 workstation through it paces, and he is extremely positive as well with what he found. According to Frank, "Sun undoubtedly has a winner with the Ultra 24 series of workstations, and other vendors will be hard-pressed to outperform it. What's more, the Ultra 24 proves that quality is still a valuable asset when it comes to workstations. The unit is built like a tank, yet offers toolless access to components. The company has successfully balanced quality with ease of service, while still offering unquestionable performance."
