Vol 102, Issue 3: 4 August, 2006 - 20 August, 2006

There is a lot of news this week, starting with the new workstation and midrange and high-end servers Sun announced this week; article [16861] provides an overview. Some of the servers use the 1.8 GHz UltraSPARC IV+ processor which doubles the memory capacity while others use the next-generation AMD Opteron processor. We will continue to cover the individual servers over the next few weeks until we get them all.

Also making news is discounts on electric bills: PG&E is offering rebates to California businesses that use Sun Fire T1000 or T2000 servers in their datacenters (see article [16867]).

Also new is the Sun StorageTek 6140 array and 6540 array [16855], the first new products created by the combined Sun and StorageTek teams. Get the 6140 array for less in a new promotion [16754] when you purchase a server and the array.

This week we also have more storage and server announcements such as new pricing or support. There's a training class for sys admins who work with the Sun Fire T2000 servers [16835]. For those interested in the Java SE 6 (Mustang), see a new Net Talk online and information on the beta release [16854].
