Windows and Linux-based Intel hardware vendors such as
Hewlett-Packard, Compaq and Dell Computer in the low-end PC server
market, Sun officials said. Sun's announcements featured a Sun
Cobalt server appliance running an AMD processor and the Linux OS,
and Netra systems built on Sun's Solaris OS and SPARC CPU
"The product lineup enables the company to now provide Internet
data center systems ranging in cost from less than $1,000 to $1
million, according to a statement from Palo Alto, Calif.-based
"Today, we go after the cost-sensitive server marketplace," said
Ed Zander, Sun president and CEO, in a press event held to unveil
the products in San Francisco."
"Sun's offerings are intended to help service providers offer
services such as third-generation wireless applications as well as
hosting and outsourcing, said John McFarlane, executive vice
president of Sun's network service provider group. "We have a huge
opportunity for service providers around the Internet to build
additional revenue streams," McFarlane said."
