Sun unveils AMD Opteron-based servers

Posted on Monday, September 12 2005 @ 22:56:51 CEST by

Sun today unveiled X2100, X4100 and X4200 servers based on AMD's Opteron server processors. The new servers can be equipped with two dual-core Opteron processors and according to Sun the systems are cheaper, faster, use less power and take up less space than comparable servers made by rival companies, including Dell and HP.
"We decided to get much more serious about the industry-standard server market," said John Fowler, who runs Sun's network systems group, which includes the new products.

Industry-standard servers, also known as x86 servers are those that use either Intel, AMD or Intel-compatible chips as their data processing engines. Sun, along with rival International Business Machines Corp., also sells higher-end servers that use their own in-house designed processors.
The X2100 starts at $745, the X4100 at $2,195 and the X4200 at $2,595. More details at Reuters
