Fujitsu servers move to Solaris 9

Less than a month after Sun Microsystems brought its new Solaris 9 operating system to its servers, Fujitsu Technology Solutions has followed suit with its own servers. Fujitsu's Primepower servers, which include 128-processor behemoths, use Sparc64 GP processors that work similarly to Sun's UltraSparc chips and thus can run Sun's operating system and the higher-level software available for it. Fujitsu said Solaris 9 improves security and the amount of computing performance that can be wrung out of multiprocessor servers. Solaris, like IBM's AIX and Hewlett-Packard's HP-UX, is a version of Unix that competes with Linux and Microsoft Windows.
