Sun lures midsize banks

Sun Microsystems has added dozens of new midsize banks to its customer list, the server seller plans to announce Monday, as evidence it's succeeding in diversifying its base of buyers and sealing alliances in specific segments of the computer industry. Sun has sold servers and software to 78 banks in the last 90 days, the company said.

Through business partner Kirchman, which sells software called Bankway, Sun sold V880 servers to TowneBank in Virginia, which also evaluated IBM mainframes for its choice; Landrum Holding Company in Missouri; Mars National Bank in Ohio; and Security National Bank in Nebraska. Sun sold systems to 72 other banks through a variety of other partners such as Intrieve, Sun said.
