Sun upgrades E10000 server

Sun Microsystems has moved its high-end E10000 server a step closer to the mainframe computers it's intended to replace. Drawing on a product from BMC Software, Sun now sells software that can automatically resize E10000 partitions as workload demands change. Partitions are groups of CPUs and memory devoted to a specific task. Sun on Tuesday also announced version 1.0 of its Enterprise Systems Interface, a system to connect to mainframes using IBM's ESCON (Enterprise System Connection) interface.
