Sun is still developing the new line, codenamed "Galaxy", but it is expected to include both two- and four-processor models.
The new servers will compete against other servers in the market running on Intel’s Xeon processor configurations.
Some of the systems will also address the growing blade server market, which is currently led by IBM and HP.
