Sun Microsystems History

Sun sold computers, computer components, software, and IT services. Founded on February 24, 1982, Sun headquarters were in Santa Clara, California.

Sun was acquired by Oracle in 2010 and become Oracle America, Inc.

Sun Hardware and Software

Sun produced computer servers and workstations on its own SPARC processors, storage systems and software products. Sun is known for having developed the Java platform, MySQL (which incidentally is used in the content management system of our website), and NFS. A proponent of open systems and Unix in particular, Sun was a major advocate for and contributor to open source software.

Sun Servers

Sun’s main lines of servers include the Sun Enterprise server line and the Sun Fire and Sun Fire Blade server lines.

Sun Servers have such a good reputation that Oracle continues to promise great performance and cost-saving. Sun systems run Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, Oracle VM (formerly Sun Operating systems), and other leading operating platforms.

Sun servers are industry-leading SPARC and x86-based systems and are ideal for many applications and solutions.

Sun Enterprise Servers

Sun Enterprise severs are UNIX server computers from Sun Microsystems that were produced from 1996 to 2001. Initially called Sun Ultra Enterprise series; “Ultra” was removed from the name around 1998.

Sun based the line on the 64-bit UltraSPARC microprocessors and related to the contemporary Ultra workstations. They ran the Solaris Operating system. The Enterprise sever was phased out in 2001 and was replaced with Sun Fire servers.

Sun Fire Servers

Sun Fire servers were first available from Sun in 2001 at the same time the UltraSPARC III processor. In 2003 Sun introduced Sun Fire servers using Intel Xeon processors, and eventually started using AMD Opteron processors and the UltraSPARC IV dual-core processor.

Sun Add-ons and Peripherals

Sun was also a major manufacturer of peripherals, including monitors, and add-ons such as memory, additional graphics and storage options for their Enterprise and Fire sever lines.
