Solaris Fast on the New Intel Xeon 5500
By Jimgris-Oracle on Mar 31, 2009
It's great to see Solaris and OpenSolaris moving fast to support new processors -- Sun Solaris Platform Advancements Unleash the Power of the Intel Xeon Processor 5500 Series.
Unleashing things is good, too. There is a lot of technical content for
developers and administrators out there now, but for me the best part
of the announcement is that it's based in part on a long relationship
between two companies doing development in the OpenSolars project.
Seems things are going well when they lead to results like this. I've
met a bunch of the Intel engineers over the past two years, and it has
been a pleasure engaging with them at various times.
