Fowler Talks Solaris Virtualization at IDF, Previews Intel-based Sun Server
By michelleparkinson on Sep 19, 2007
Sun Systems EVP John Fowler took the stage
yesterday as part of
Pat Gelsinger's keynote at Intel Developer Forum, talking about the
virtualization capabilities in Solaris (they're available at NO COST)
and providing a general update on the progress the two companies have
made since the announcement of their alliance in January '07.
The Webcast replay is available here.
Fowler previewed a soon-to-be-announced Intel-based Sun system
and showed a quick demo. If you look closely at the first pic in this entry,
you'll notice the Sun system is hmh, what, half the size of the others?
That Sun server can run Solaris, Windows (you saw last week's
announcement here), Linux or VMware.
IDF runs through Thursday at Moscone West in San Francisco.
