Sun Microsystems has finally released it heavily touted Sun Fire 15K server promising cost savings and flexibility, and mainframe-class robustness. The server, also known as the Starcat, includes technology which can divide and resize a system into separate segments enabling optimal management and resource use.

Sun is looking to build on the success of its Enterprise 10000 server, but promises increased capacity, complete component redundancy and a more flexible dynamic system domain design with the Starcat.

“[The Starcat] announcement is the culmination if five years of investment in R&D from Sun giving us an unrivalled product line with which to win new market opportunities in the Middle East,” said Denis Heraud, managing director, Sun Microsystems, MEA.

“The Sun Fire 15K system exceeds the Enterprise 10000 in every dimension of scalability, availability and performance. Now, not only do we have a product that’s peerless, we are the only company with a fully-compatible product family from $1,000 to $10 million,” added Heraud.
