Fujitsu Siemens claims the PrimePower-Solaris combination will ensure customers that their business critical computing environments stay up and running securely, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year. Sun plans to make Solaris 10 available in January 2005. The Solaris 10 OS is the most innovative and business critical UNIX OS in the market, assuring customers of the highest levels of reliability, flexibility and ease-of-use, all inside a secure operating environment. PrimePower has been a platform for Solaris since 1998. With outstanding performance records, Fujitsu Siemens claims PrimePower servers, from 2-processor systems through 128-processor systems, are leading the way in the field of UNIX servers. All Fujitsu Siemens Computers PrimePower systems are certified as part of Sun’s Solaris Hardware Partner Program (SHWP). Any application developed using standard Solaris Application Program Interfaces (APIs) and Application Binary Interfaces (ABIs) will run on PrimePower systems unmodified including, of course, Sun’s middleware software products. “The release of Solaris 10 is greeted with excitement by customers and industry. Solaris 10 provides the huge installed base and the thousands of application developers with new functionality, security and reduced complexity,” says Dieter Herzog, executive vice president enterprise products, Fujitsu Siemens. “With PrimePower and Solaris 10, we offer the customer the best choice for their infrastructures,” he adds.
