T2: Sun, Fujitsu, Sparc, Solaris

Sun doubles processing power of UltraSparc T2 Plus servers: "Sales of systems based on the multithreading UltraSparc chips 'have seen dramatic growth.' [Jean Bozman, analyst at IDC] also said that she is seeing evidence of Sun gaining new customers via the multithreading technology.' " -- Computerworld

Cool. Nice to see Solaris running a hot new platform driving growth. Sun press release here. Sun technical blogs here.

T5120 T5220 T6320

Allan Packer summarizes the engineering blogs covering the new UltraSPARC T2 systems -- CMT Comes of Age. This is very cool since these are "the engineers who have developed [the systems], tested them, and pushed them to their limits." It's great that we can read directly from the developers. Scary smart stuff. There's also lots of press out there, but I tripped over this quote right away: "Sun has struck a blow with two deceptively powerful servers that, of all things, pack all of their mutlthreaded into rack and blade options." That's from Tom Yager's Sun's T-2 (Niagara 2) servers launch to an enthusiastic reception. See the joint Sun and Fujitsu announcement as well.

Getting Back in the Game

I see we're getting back in the game here -- Gartner and IDC Show Sun Gaining Server Market Share. And here -- Sun stuns server market in Q1 with sales spike. And it's nice to start reading quotes like this -- "IDC analyst Steve Josselyn said Sun's UltraSparc T1-based multi-core machines and Opteron-based x64 Galaxy servers are "beginning to resonate with customers."
