Sun Microsystems is to offer 64-bit Opteron processors from AMD on its Sun Fire servers.

Two-way and four-way servers with 64-bit Opteron chips will be introduced during 2004, said Sun chairman Scott McNealy, speaking at last week's Comdex show in Las Vegas.

Dave Shearer, chairman of the UK Sun User Group, said, "Sun seems to be opening up its product range to give people what they have been asking for. 64-bit gives users greater flexibility and speed on their server farms."

Gartner said the deal could be good news for Unix and Sun Solaris customers seeking a migration path to Linux.
