Sun Microsystems has launched a subscription upgrade programme for its latest line of servers.

The vendor claimed the Sun Refresh Service would dramatically reduce data costs and increase performance by allowing customers to get their hands on the latest technology at greatly reduced prices.

Launched last week along with Sun's new Blade X8420 servers, the refresh service includes installation of the Sun Blade 8000 modular system, ten X8420 servers and three refreshes of server modules over a 42-month period.

"The Sun Refresh Service gives customers the ability to refresh their x64 architecture as soon as new technology becomes available, saving on power and cooling costs in addition to millions of dollars in software licenses," said Lisa Sieker, vice president of marketing for Sun's Systems Group.

The service is currently only available in the US, but Sun's regional office said it was planning to make the service available in the Middle East in the future.
