Dell Offers Solaris 10 on Nine PowerEdge Servers

It started with a handshake and a t-shirt exchanged between two industry leaders in November. This week, Dell expanded its support of the Solaris OS by leaps and bounds as it began offering Solaris 10 as an OS option on nine of its most popular Intel & AMD based PowerEdge servers.  Dell now offers Solaris across a broader range of x86 based systems than any vendor - aside from Sun - including both Intel and AMD based rack servers and blades.

In addition to shipping and supporting Solaris on PowerEdge servers, Dell will provide technical assistance for Solaris on Dell systems to its customers, better simplifying the experience when they’re seeking to purchase a complete hardware, software and service solution.

For more information about Solaris on Dell servers, including a complete list of the newly certified PowerEdge systems, check out http://www.dell.com/solaris.

Dell is just one of a number of leading global systems vendors  to offer Solaris on its systems.  This week’s news with Dell underscores the growing demand Sun has seen for Solaris on x86 systems and offers even broader choice of supported systems for Solaris customers.  For the very latest information on Solaris, visit http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/index.jsp

Good news for Sun and Dell.

Though Dell may 'offer' Solaris across a broader range of x86 based systems than any vendor - aside from Sun - HP offers more servers certified on Solaris (www.hp.com/wwsolutions/solaris). And HP is the only server vendor that is a member of Sun Cluster's Open Hardware Program (http://www.sun.com/software/cluster/ohp/matrix.jsp). HP has also obtained SAP on Solaris certification (http://www.saponsolaris.com/hp.html) - Dell has not. All of this points to HP's commitment to deliver a broad range of choice and flexibility of ProLiant servers running the Solaris operating system which is much more than offering the Solaris operating system alone.
