Sun Demonstrates Its Multi-Core x64 AMD Opteron Processor on Netra ATCA Blade Server at VON

Sun Microsystems made the first public demonstration of its upcoming Netra ATCA (advanced telecom computing architecture) blade server powered with the multi-core AMD Opteron processor and running Solaris 10 OS at the 2005 VON (Voice on the Net) Conference. Sun's ATCA blade platform will be able to support both SPARC and AMD Opteron processor-based blades in the same chassis with choice of operating systems, including the Solaris OS and MontaVista Linux.

The ATCA blade server with the SPARC processor is scheduled for release at the end of 2005 with the AMD Opteron processor-based blade scheduled for release at the end of the first quarter of 2006.

Sun will bring the advantages of the carrier grade Solaris 10 OS with a common standards-based management and availability suite to those customers who choose to use the AMD Opteron processor in Sun's ATCA blade platform. For those customers who require carrier grade Linux on Sun's ATCA blade platform, Sun is announcing support for MontaVista Carrier Grade Edition (CGE). Monta Vista is currently working on an optimized port of its Linux environment for Sun's ATCA blade platform and multi-core AMD Opteron processor-based blade server.
