Sun Wins 3 InfoWorld 2008 Technology of the Year Awards !!!


In a very impressive achievement, Sun received three 2008 Technology of the Year awards from InfoWorld today. Selected by InfoWorld Test Center editors and reviewers, the Technology of the Year awards recognize the most groundbreaking, most valuable products in IT, as evaluated by InfoWorld in 2007.

First, in the platforms category, Sun Solaris 10 took home "Most Innovative Server OS." InfoWorld claims, "No server operating system satisfies more varied requirements or boasts a wider range of brilliant features," praising the ZFS file system, DTrace and Solaris Containers features. They also note, "it's simply the most innovative version of a server operating system this decade." Solaris

Sun Fire X4500 Server Next, in the hardware category, the Sun Fire X4500 was awarded "Best Storage Server." Paul Venezia reviewed the product in July 2007, highlighting many of the key features -- including 48 SATA drives in a single 4U chassis accompanying a dual-Opteron server with two PCI-X slots -- and noting the product "will certainly make waves."

Finally, ZFS itself won an award for "Best File System" in the storage category. InfoWorld says the Sun solution's fluidity, malleability and scalability "far surpass any file system available now on any platform." The award links to Paul Venezia's very postive review in June 2007 and closes by saying ZFS is an "amazingly well-thought-out and nicely implemented solution."
