JPMorgan and Sun Microsystems have joined forces to develop a range of financial services systems using Sun’s Solaris 10 operating system.
The pair plan to launch solutions that cover grid computing, data archiving and data centre virtualisation to enable mixed-platform architectures.
JPMorgan’s investment bank technology team has recently trialled utility computing and provisioning systems, in addition to a trading data archive for use by the investment bank and its clients. All these systems have used Solaris and Sun servers.
Sun recently made elements of its Solaris operating system open source.
