EIS EFFORTS STYMIED BY SUN; READIES QUAD SPARC

By CBR Staff Writer

As a result of Sun Microsystems Inc having shipped practically none of its UltraSparc Iii Ultra AXi OEM boards since March, Sparc-compatible vendors such as Moorpark, California-based EIS Computers Inc have been in an awkward position. EIS can’t go and recruit the kinds of channel partners it was seeking for the PCI bus servers it planned to configure using the board, and it’s now around three months behind in its recruitment efforts. Following Integrix Systems Inc’s announcement of a four-way server, EIS promises it will announce its own quad using the UltraSparc II Ultra AX-MP board, which Sun is peddling an embedded server controller. EIS’ UltraSparc II-based Fusion-1 uniprocessor equivalent of Sun’s Ultra 30 server is still around, although clustering them is not on the EIS front burner; it says it has too many other OEM deals going on to engineer its own product right now.
