HP to Ship the Solaris 10 OS With its ProLiant Systems
By user12611852 on Feb 25, 2009
In a resounding endorsement for the Solaris 10 enterprise grade operating system. Today, Sun and Hewlett-Packard announced an expanded multi-year partnership agreement for HP to distribute and support Sun's Solaris 10 OS. The top five x86/x64 based system vendors (Sun, HP, IBM, Fujitus/Siemens, Dell) now all ship Solaris with their systems.
If you don't happen to have an HP system, feel free to check out Sun's servers based on the Intel, AMD or Sparc processors or download Solaris 10 or OpenSolaris for free and try it out on your laptop or PC. If you don't like the ugly mess of muti-booting using GRUB, try it in Sun's free and open-source VirtualBox environment. VBOX allows you to run Solaris 10, OpenSolaris, Red Hat or Windows on top of a variety of hosts such as Windows, Linux, Solaris or Mac OS.
