Sun for Windows Essential Business Server Solution
By Candice on Nov 12, 2008
As you may have seen, Microsoft today released Windows Essential Business Server 2008, a new bundled software package that includes Windows Server 2008, Exchange Server 2007 and other software that midsized businesses require.
Expanding its portfolio of mid-market solutions, Sun introduced the Sun for Windows Essential Business Server Solution, a pre-configured, competitively priced server and storage solution that makes it easy to get EBS up and running.
Usually, EBS runs on 3 separate servers, but the Sun EBS Solution takes advantage of the software’s virtualization capabilities to run on just 1 system (Sun’s x4150 or x4250 server with attached J4200 storage). This saves on space and up-front costs – not to mention the resources it takes to power, cool and manage more servers – and can mean real savings for customers. For example, a company using a medium configuration of the Sun EBS solution (for 100-200 users) can save more than 80% in power and cooling expenses and 29% in total spend over 3 years vs. competitive solutions for EBS.
Sun expects EBS to present a great opportunity for its channel partners with Microsoft and Sun expertise. Companies interested in checking out the Sun solution can do so for free through Sun's Try and Buy program.
