I do not normally cover technology news unless it is related to EIPP or ERP. But this is quite a big story – Dell selling Solaris operating system software. Sun declares the reasons for this partnership as market momentum and customer demand. Solaris will be shipped on selected Dell PowerEdge Servers. Dell is believed to be the third major vendor to endorse Solaris OS this year. Further information can be access through here
This is also great news for Sun ISV partners, who can now sell into Dell customer base. ebdex used to be an ISV partner of Sun Microsystems, and perhaps still is. But these days we are concentrating on providing advisory services and not involved with any product offerings. Yes, I still got couple of Sun boxes in my office – impressive designs.
