You thought it would never happen: arch rivals, HP and Sun, partnering. Well, I have news for you: HP and Sun are collaborating, and we are both excited about it. If you haven't already heard, yesterday, we announced a three-year agreement. What does this mean? HP can now distribute and support Solaris 10 across our ProLiant and BladeSystem x86 platforms.
HP can help YOU, our customers, confidently deploy and support Solaris workloads on ProLiant. This is big news! This partnership with Sun will also enable Solaris 10 to run best on ProLiant. While it can be debated whether Solaris runs best on ProLiant or Solaris runs best on Sun or other x86 hardware, this agreement is significant for our customers - as it will dramatically improve the experience when it runs on ProLiant.
Go ahead, choose for yourself, but this partnership is designed to meet needs communicated through customer feedback. In turn, we are executing on giving you, the customer, a better experience when running Solaris 10 on ProLiant. HP + Sun are partnering for you.
