The Solaris OS and Intel Nehalem-EX
Source: Sun Microsystems
Solaris has continued to demonstrate great success as a mission-critical, enterprise class OS for scalable performance, advanced reliability, and power efficiency in the data center. The upcoming introduction of the next generation Intel Xeon processor is creating an even greater demand for Solaris in the x 86 volume server segments. Solaris is leveraging more than 20 years SMP expertise for proven performance in a very large multi-core processing environment. The next generation Intel Xeon processor is well positioned to take advantage of the Solaris 10 OS, with features specifically engineered for multi-core systems.
