Sun Microsystems has published details of a multi-year agreement with Fujitsu Siemens to distribute Sun's Solaris OS with selected Primergy servers.
The agreement will enable Fujitsu Siemens to offer pre-configured Solaris-based Primergy systems and related support services direct from its factory for the first time.
The partners said that they would work together to certify technologies based on Solaris and Primergy hardware and to secure support from independent software and hardware vendors.
The deal brings the number of x86/x64 systems supporting Solaris 10 to 950.
Rich Green, executive vice president of software at Sun, said: "By expanding the Solaris footprint we are opening the door for companies, especially those in the public sector, financial services, telecoms, retail and healthcare, to access the advanced scalability, reliability and virtualisation features unique to Solaris."
