Sun® Server Support
Despite the Oracle acquisition, Sun servers continue to play an important role at the heart of many organisations. But as their Sun Enterprise, SunFire and E10K servers get older, Oracle are generally unwilling to provide extended support. Sun owners come under increasing pressure to upgrade their servers to a newer, Oracle-badged alternative.
But where Sun servers perform adequately, or where line of business applications are tied to the SPARC architecture, upgrades are not an option. Should Sun/Oracle withdraw support, Enterprise Server owners could run into problems.
As a credible provider of proven third party Sun support and maintenance services, CDS offers another option. Our team of OEM-trained Level 3 engineers can deliver local and remote support to keep your servers running efficiently.
As a vendor agnostic provider of enterprise-class support and maintenance services, CDS can provide advice and guidance on your Sun servers, as well as hardware from other OEMs.
