Sun Microsystems has announced the availability of faster 1.95GHz and 2.1GHz Ultrasparc IV+ processors for its Sun Fire servers.
The new processor speeds compare to the previous top range speed of 1.8GHz.
Sun Fire Ultrasparc platforms are designed to help customers with CRM, business intelligence/datawarehousing, and enterprise applications using large databases.
John Fowler, executive vice-president for the systems group at Sun Microsystems, said, "The growing demand for Ultrasparc IV+ servers has helped Sun build tremendous market momentum in our systems line-up, and steal significant market share at the expense of our competitors."
In Sun’s second financial quarter ending 31 December, Ultrasparc revenue was up almost a fifth, although the company is still looking to get back the high-end server market share it lost in the dotcom bust era.
