Sun released new servers and storage arrays

We had to wait for upcoming AMD Opteron servers from Sun a few months since the new quad-core AMD processors, code named Barcelona, were released. Now, it would be a few days when Sun officially announced here the availibility of the second generation of their AMD servers and new storage arrays, together called as "next generation open storage hardware". More about the Open Storage hardware and related projects, you can find here.

The new servers based on quad-core AMD processors are Sun Fire X4140, 4240 and X4540. At the storage field, there were introduced new Sun Storage J4200, J4400 and J4500 arrays. All of them are SAS JBOD arrays. For more details, look at the Sun System Handbook at SunSolve.
