Solaris Now an Option for IBM Blades

grunby With IBM stating that it'll support Solaris... (101 comments)

This should provide IBM a boost in sales being that it's looking like it's providing true support for Solaris. Last I checked, other x86 blade vendors (HP and Dell come to mind) were only truly supporting Windows and Linux. Even though I consider them both enterprise operating systems, it'd be a lot easier justifying IBM BladeCenters to the higher ups and getting them in-house with Sun's support. In the long run, this could also get the convergence on one *nix OS (linux) easier since the gateway is in place.
