Sun Microsystems has extended its Sun Startup Essentials Programme to the UK. The programme offers start-ups big discounts on Sun products and services.

The extension of the start-up programme will also cover Israel, said Sun. As well as discounted Sun products and services, UK and Israeli firms will also be offered cut-price web hosting services from new Sun partner NTT Europe Online.

Launched in November 2006, more than 1,300 companies in the US and Asia are already benefiting from the start-up programme, said Sun. It said the UK and Israel were targeted for the extension as they were two regions that have seen a significant increase in the number of innovative developers, amount of venture capitalist funding and the number of start-up companies.

Discounted products under the scheme include Sun Fire x64 servers and Sun Fire servers equipped with the powerful CoolThreads technology.
