Solaris Now Available Through Dell

Starting today, we will be OEMing Solaris for customers looking for this option on Dell PowerEdge servers. We've worked closely with Sun to certify a select set of Dell PowerEdge servers for Solaris. The idea here is to give customers one place to purchase an entire solution – hardware, software and services with ongoing support.  This should help reduce complexity and risk and lower operational costs.

Solaris 10 5/08 will be sold as a drop in the box. Additionally, Dell ProSupport will provide technical assistance for Solaris on Dell solutions, so customers only need to make one phone call to get answers to Solaris questions. To see a list of all Dell PowerEdge servers that are certified, visit or Sun’s HCL at
