Sun Microsystems has expanded the hardware support available for its Solaris Operating System x86 Platform Edition.
The vendor has added 100 new third-party systems and 100 new components to the operating system's Hardware Compatibility List (HCL).
The Unix giant has also introduced a hardware certification test suite and promotion programme, designed to allow integrators, system vendors and independent hardware vendors to self-certify their x86 platforms.
All Solaris 9 OS x86 users and vendors are being encouraged to participate, test and list their products on Sun's Solaris 9 OS x86 HCL website.
"We've seen more than 250,000 additional registered licences of Solaris 9 x86, from industries such as finance, government, retail and telecoms, in the past four months alone," said Ann Wettersten, vice president of marketing for the software systems group at Sun.
