Sun Microsystems is looking to shore up its low-end server market leadership in the region with the introduction of the Sun Fire V880 and Netra 20 servers. Promising mid-range performance, reliability and expandability at low-end pricing, the servers are designed to reduce complexity and drive down costs in corporate data centres.

The Sun Fire V880 boasts the best value in Sun’s low-end server category, with the company claiming that it costs up to 47% less than its Wintel-based competitors while the Netra 20 totes excellent compute-density as it takes on its major NEBS Level-3 certified competitors.

"With the Sun Fire V880 server, we can increase our market share in a fast growing segment of the Middle East server market - the low end," says Johann Muller, product sales manager, Sun Microsystems Middle East Africa

"Using the same technologies that make our enterprise-level servers the reliable and scalable systems they are, we've created a new kind of entry-level server that saves our customers money today, and offers them a simple path for future growth," he adds.
