Sun Launches Eco Initiative

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:SUNW), today announced a comprehensive suite of programs and solutions that leverage Sun's technology innovations and help customers architect more energy efficient, eco responsible datacenters and save money. The Eco Innovation(SM) Initiative is an extension of Sun's Eco Responsibility Initiative, which was launched in November 2005.

Joining Sun's award winning SunFire(TM) servers, Solaris(TM) Operating System(OS), inventive throughput computing technology and storage technology, Sun's new Eco Innovation Initiative adds Sun Eco Ready Kits and a suite of Eco services that will play a key role in empowering IT departments worldwide to join the growing list of businesses adding smart energy-saving technology to their existing IT portfolio.
