The Sun LX50: The Industry's First Affordable J2EE Development Platform

(August 13, 2002) -- Sun Microsystems, Inc. has launched a new generation of low-cost, entry level x86 systems that will include - as part of the system - the SunTM Open Net Environment (Sun ONE) software stack and other key software offerings. Sun's first product in the entry level x86 system category, the SunTM LX50, is the industry's first enterprise-class, low-cost system to ship with pre-integrated and optimized software and applications - including Sun ONE software, Linux, SolarisTM Operating Environment (OE), and JavaTM technology. By pre-integrating its enterprise-class software into the Sun LX50, Sun is significantly changing the economics for its customers by offering one system, with both hardware and software, at one price.

The Sun LX50 enables customers to use Sun's Sun ONE software architecture to lower their total cost of ownership in the development, deployment, and delivery of Web services on the Linux and Solaris OE platforms.

Sun will be delivering the Sun ONE software stack on its new line of x86 servers over the next two quarters. Nearly three million Java technology and XML developers, and the hundreds of thousands of Solaris and Linux developers can now develop, deploy, and manage their applications on an integrated, cost-effective, entry level system.

In addition, Sun will also be offering its key Sun ONE products preconfigured on the Sun LX50. By integrating its middleware products with Java technology and XML on a single system, customers automatically have all the tools they need to deploy their applications across any operating system. Since the tools are already integrated into the system, customers have everything already out of the box, with no downloads, installations, or hassles. The Sun LX50 stands apart from closed proprietary systems by offering the industry's first affordable J2EETM development platform.

"Sun has always stood apart on choice and an open systems approach. Today we're combining both in a move that delivers as yet unseen value to customers," said Scott McNealy, chairman, president, and CEO at Sun Microsystems, Inc. "Entry level systems are the fastest growing segment of our systems product line and with the Sun LX50 we're turning up the heat while expanding our available market. This unprecedented integration of software, applications and technology creates a new class of Linux and Solaris OE systems developers and lowers total cost of ownership for enterprises."

The Sun LX50 is the first general purpose Linux-based server from Sun. The Sun LX50 is based on the standard 2.4 Linux kernel and is pre-installed on the Sun LX50 as part of an optimized and integrated system with a focus on stability, security, ease of installation and set up and remote manageability. Linux, like the Solaris OE, includes optimized and tested drivers and easily integrates with JavaTM technology and the SunTM ONE platform. The Linux version of the Sun LX50 is also fully supported by Sun's professional and support services.

Sun applications and software will run on the Sun LX50 as Sun continues to innovate for the Linux and Solaris platforms. More information can be found at www.sun.com/presskits/entrysystems2002 and at www.sun.com/sunone/subscribe
