Sun Microsystems Launches Niagara Servers

Sun Microsystems plans take the "Niagara" plunge Tuesday in New York, launching its new UltraSparc T1-based servers, which are a key part of the company's effort to restore its ailing server fortunes by catering to its core customers.
The Sun Fire T2000 and T1000 use the UltraSparc T1 processor, code-named Niagara, a radical processor design that Sun hopes will turn around the Sparc family's market share losses. The Niagara systems are the second half of a server overhaul that began three months ago when Sun introduced its "Galaxy" line of x86 servers.
The 3.5-inch-thick T2000 is available now with a minimum price of $7,795 and a maximum of $25,995. The T1000, half as thick but lacking the T2000's redundant components, will arrive in the first quarter of 2006 with prices ranging from $2,995 to $10,995.
