Sun Microsystems Inc. and Microsoft Corp. today announced two new milestones in their ongoing alliance: the official opening of the Sun/Microsoft Interoperability Center on Microsoft’s Redmond campus for optimizing Microsoft applications on Sun Fire™ x64 server systems storage, and the availability of the Sun Infrastructure Solution for Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.
More information on the Sun Infrastructure Solutions for Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 is available at http://www.sun.com/exchange and http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/bb412164.aspx
Objectives of the Sun/Microsoft Interoperability Center will include optimization of Microsoft applications on Sun x64 systems and storage, and promotion of full interoperability in application areas such as virtualization, Java™ technology, systems management and identity. In addition, the center will collaborate with authorized Sun Solution Centers to support customers in running their own proof-of-concept testing. Customers can minimize their risk and shorten time to deployment by simulating their own environment, with access to top architects from both Sun and Microsoft.
