CoolThreads Servers Deliver Major Energy and Cost Savings

Last week, the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5120 (and T5220) was awarded the SearchDataCenter Product of the Year award. SearchDataCenter talked up the eco-efficiency of the system, and the performance per watt it delivers. More on all that here

But that's not all just a lot of talk -- let's look at the dollars and cents.

 

 

 

Check out how the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5120 server compares to a 2-socket x86     
server. You're reading it right, the T5120 is roughly half the cost to power and cool
(annually) and comes out 20% cheaper overall. The details are here.

 

 

 

 

 

And, the Sun SPARC Enterprise T1000 is no slouch either. It comes out at nearly 1/3 the cost of a comparable 1U x86 server and is nearly 1/3 less to power and cool (annually). The savings are even greater -- $700-$1000 per server -- if you're a PG&E customer and can take advantage of their rebate program. Details here.

 

Get your hands on either systems through Sun's Try and Buy program. Sign up for a risk-free, 60-day trial of these systems then buy at 25-45% off.

Sun Accelerates Web 2.0 Build Out with Up to 55% Discount for Startups

Sun is making startups an offer they can't refuse -- discounts of up to 55% on select Sun technologies, including its Sun Fire x64 and CoolThreads servers. Yes, you heard right -- up to 55%.

The new program, Sun Startup Essentials is aimed to enable startups to capitalize on the power of the Solaris OS  and run their businesses on Sun technologies at a price point that fits their budgets. 

Attendees at last week's Sun's Startup Camp -- which I might add was sold out and standing room only -- got the first look at the program and more than 20 companies have already signed on to take advantage of the deal.  Are you eligible?
