The Unix giant, together with systems integrator partners Satyam Computer Services, Tata Consultancy Services and Wipro Technologies, promises to provide large companies with a "risk free" migration path from any existing operating system.
Sun's pre-migration business and environmental analysis service includes a data centre calculator, along with tools to provide an objective view of the total cost of running and maintaining the existing infrastructure.
The vendor claimed that these services provide enterprise customers with everything they need to compare platforms, from environmental assessment to optimisation and long-term management of the enterprise operating system.
In order to eliminate "unexpected costs and delays" customers will be given a fixed-price model based on their migration circumstances.
They will also be given the opportunity to test their entire infrastructure prior to any full-scale deployments to obtain "proof of results with minimal investment".
"Sun has seen overwhelming demand from customers scrambling to move away from proprietary operating systems such as IBM AIX and HP-UX," claimed Tom Goguen, vice president of software marketing at Sun.
Ramesh Emani, president of product engineering solutions at Wipro Technologies, added: "Wipro has developed a ROI/TCO tool that helps our customers analyse business value for their Solaris 10 deployments."
