Hot on the heels of the Golden Globes "news conference", SearchDataCenter took the wraps off of its Product of the Year 2007 Awards winners. The UltraSPARC T2-based Sun SPARC Enterprise T5120 and T5220 took home GOLD in the Small Servers (four processors and under) category.
Judged on criteria including ease of integration into existing environments, innovation and value, the write up on the T5120 and T5220 notes the energy efficiency and performance per watt of the systems as well as the "free virtualization capabilities with Solaris Containers and Logical Domains (LDoms) that help keep IT costs low."
Additionally, SearchDataCenter highlights the systems for using "the same chassis, power supplies, disks and fans are used on the Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Intel Corp. processor-based variants of the servers, and the remote management capabilities are compatible with Sun's x64 family of servers, with standardized interfaces that are backwards compatible with the previous generation of SPARC remote management facilities."
