Sun-Microsoft Collab Results in Interop Center

Sun, Microsoft are working together to develop a set of guidelines for implementing Exchange Server 2007 on Sun server and storage hardware.

Sun Microsystems and Microsoft are working together to develop a set of guidelines for implementing Exchange Server 2007 on Sun server and storage hardware. Billed as Sun's Infrastructure Solution for Exchange, the guidelines allow scalable implementations for 1,000 to 20,000 mailboxes.

The Sun Infrastructure Solution for Exchange marks the first official collaborative effort to emerge from the Sun/Microsoft Interoperability Center, which officially opened up on the Microsoft Campus on Monday. The center has been in development for three year, ever since Sun and Microsoft buried the competitive hatchet.

According to a press release, the center will serve "as a working lab for tuning, benchmarking and interoperability solutions creation." It has Sun Fire and StorageTek test machines running Windows Server 2008 and Exchange Server 2007 and the ability to test cross-platform virtualization server implementations, including Windows Hyper-V and Sun xVM.

The center will also provide certification services for Java Platform Standard and Enterprise Edition and Java Runtime Environment applications running on Windows Server 2008.
