FUJITSU IN $280m FIVE-YEAR PACT WITH SUN MICROSYSTEMS

By CBR Staff Writer

Sun Microsystems and Fujitsu Ltd yesterday announced that their discussions (CI No 985) had culminated in an enormous five-year OEM agreement valued at a minimum of $280m, under which Fujitsu will market the 68000 family Sun-3 and Sparc-based Sun-4 workstations and servers as the Fujitsu S Family. Fujitsu is looking to sell about 15,000 systems in the first three years of the agreement, initially in Japan, although the pact covers the entire world. Fujitsu manufactures one version of the Sparc chip at its US plant, and was keen to get the Sun workstations because of the broad range of 1,500 pacakges that runs under the SunOS version of Unix.
