File System Performance
Simpler, faster, open and more cost-effective ways of using network computing
During the economic boom of the late 1990s, companies expanded their information technology (IT) infrastructures to meet the demands of increasing numbers of network users and devices. Times have since changed, and businesses are under increasing pressure to deliver IT services with greater functionality at reduced costs. Pressure to deliver results to the bottom line is forcing IT managers to find new ways to drive costs out of their operations, and they are increasingly turning to commodity, x86-based hardware for its renowned price-performance.
With an unwavering commitment to its long-term vision — The Network is the Computer™ — Sun Microsystems continues to lead the industry toward simpler, faster, open, and more cost-effective ways of using network computing for business benefit. As such, Sun offers a comprehensive range of servers and workstations based on AMD Opteron and Intel Xeon processors, running either the Solaris™ Operating System (OS) or Linux. Continually aiming to meet changing customer demands, Sun has integrated new technologies and features into the Solaris OS, designed to deliver significant performance enhancements across systems based on UltraSPARC®, AMD Opteron, and Intel Xeon technologies.
