Sun expands Open Network Systems architecture

Offers a full portfolio of services combining its Open Network Systems architecture and key ISV partner technologies

By CBR Staff Writer

Sun has expanded its Open Network Systems architecture, which converges compute, networking, software and storage. It has released new 1.6GHz processors for its chip multi-threaded (CMT) Sun SPARC Enterprise systems running the Solaris Operating System; Logical Domains (LDoms) virtualisation software leveraging the Solaris OS; and Open Network Systems-based technologies aimed to increase application performance and return on investment.

According to Sun Microsystems, the combination of new 1.6GHz UltraSPARC T2 and T2 Plus processors with new LDoms 1.2 software provides additional virtualisation and compute performance, simplifying management, reducing I/O bottlenecks and accelerating application response time.

LDoms 1.2 software, combined with the latest Solaris OS release, reportedly delivers new features that provide streamlined setup of Logical Domains with built-in command line configuration tools that enable customers to begin using LDoms and reduce system footprint through CPU power management by automatically powering off cores not in use.

The company claims the new software will enhance network performance with the support of jumbo frames, allowing customers to send more data at one time and reduce processing load requirements. It also enables migration of domains, backs up LDom configurations on disk in case of system corruption and provides with a physical-to-virtual migration tool.

Sun also offers a full portfolio of services combining its Open Network Systems architecture and key ISV partner technologies with support services.

These offerings include Sun Optimised Oracle CRM Solution, Oracle Optimised Warehouse for Sun, Enterprise Grid Solutions from Sun and Oracle, Sun Infrastructure for IBM WebSphere deployments, Sun Open Network Systems Enterprise 2.0 Solution for MySQL, and Service Delivery Network Architecture.

Sun has also developed Eco-Optimised SAP data centre to deliver end-to-end virtualisation solutions that optimise datacentre infrastructures, reduce power, cooling and space requirements. It also rolled out new AMD Opteron processor-based blades and rackmount x64 servers.
