Sun SPARC Enterprise M-class going strong

In yesterday's earnings announcement, Jonathan Schwartz noted, "We saw particular strength in our high-end systems lineup..." The high-end systems lineup he's referring to is the Sun SPARC Enterprise M-class server line, jointly developed by Sun and Fujitsu. It's a great feeling to work on a product for almost three years, watch as it enters the market, and see incredible demand. And it gives a great sense of pride that the product line is notable in its contribution to revenue and margin.

Since the M-class server line shipped in April, I've been blogging about the neat features and amazing capabilities of these servers. The CPU chip was developed by Fujitsu, but a lot of the usability, servicability and functionality that makes it a great server (not just a great chip) came from Sun, and especially from my software team.

Sadly, most of the M-class software development work is done, and it's time to move on. I'm hoping to help bring other great features to our volume systems and x64 product line in my new role.

I have a couple of posts I've started that still need a little cleanup, but after that, I think I'll be putting this blog in mothballs. Maybe I'll start another blog... The Secrets of Thumper... :-)

Thanks for all your posts. We've just commissioned a M5000 server and your tech tips have been very helpful!
