Judged on criteria including ease of integration into existing environments, innovation and value, SearchDataCenter.com notes the energy efficiency and performance per watt of the systems as well as the "free virtualization capabilities with Solaris Containers and Logical Domains (LDoms) that help keep IT costs low."
Additionally, SearchDataCenter.com highlights the systems for using "the same chassis, power supplies, disks and fans are used on the Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Intel Corp. processor-based variants of the servers, and the remote management capabilities are compatible with Sun's x64 family of servers, with standardized interfaces that are backwards compatible with the previous generation of SPARC remote management facilities."
This new year is turning out exceptionally good for Sun products...
