Sun Microsystems will unveil a new server next week that will fill the gap below high-end machines, according to reports.
The server, codenamed Starkitty, is expected to be unveiled on 9 April and will sit somewhere between Sun's Star Cat Sun Fire 15K high-end server and the Sun Fire 6800.
The 15K server can support up to 106 processors, and the mid-range 6800 can sustain 24.
The company said that it was not policy to speak about unannounced products, and would add no further comment.
Competition is hotting up in the Unix-vendor server space, with Sun, IBM and Hewlett Packard all vying for superiority.
