Sun Microsystems will showcase a wide range of software solutions at the forthcoming Gitex. Tradeshow visitors will be the first in the Middle East to view Sun’s new Galaxy product range, a robust set of rack mountable volume servers, which will be unveiled during the five-day event.

Offering simplicity and versatility, the Galaxy server is expected to provide benefits for businesses across the GCC region, according to the vendor.

“At Gitex, Sun wishes to highlight its new software, based on technical innovation and open source mindshare. Sun will showcase the manifold benefits of these solutions, such as ease of use, reduced cost and increased productivity,” says Graham Porter, marketing manager at Sun Microsystems MENA.

In addition, Sun will also showcase new additions to its Java desktop software (JDS), Star Office and the identity management software range. As commercial activities continue to increase across the Middle East, Sun believes it has to continue providing upgrades and innovative solutions.

“This year’s Gitex attendees will be treated to a display of creativity and resourcefulness that has made Sun a market leader in this region,” Porter says.

Having maintained its commitment to outside-the-box ingenuity in 2005, Sun will also provide attendees an insight into its inventive policy. The vendor has launched OpenSolaris, an initiative to outsource the Solaris program among the Middle East development community, and trigger a new wave of creativity.

The company has also launched an incentive scheme covering its storage software and AMD-based volume products. The Sun team will be distributing prizes for most prolific resellers of these products.
