Sun and HP announced today
a multi-year partnership where HP will distribute and support Solaris on their HP ProLiant line of x86 based servers. HP now joins IBM, Dell, Intel, and other Solaris OEMs in offering their customers the choice of Solaris. As Intel and AMD bring to market ever more powerful multi-core x86 CPUs, like
AMD's upcoming 6-core Istanbul CPU
, vendors such as HP need more than ever the power of Solaris innovations like dTrace and ZFS to unlock the performance, scalability and virtualization capabilities enabled by these new CPUs.
