"Sun will, this week, launch its first server appliances, since acquiring Cobalt Networks for $2bn, last month. Cobalt's server appliances have proven popular, due to their quick setup and easy administration."

"Wednesday's launch will include a new Linux-based Raq server from Sun's Cobalt subsidiary, suggesting a retreat, by Sun, from plans to replace Linux with Solaris. Developers had said putting Solaris on Cobalt servers would hamper work to create application-specific servers."

"The server, called Monterey, will have beefed-up hardware with Raid support and better backup and restore. Sun will also launch thin server additions to its Netra carrier-grade servers, the first major Netra launch since 1999."
