Santa Clara, Calif., Dec. 5 ? Sun Microsystems announced Sun Cluster 3.0, a clustering platforms for the service-driven network. Designed as an extension to the Solaris 8 operating environment, Sun Cluster 3.0 takes clustering to a new level for network-based applications including mail, Web and database applications by combining a unique application service management capability with the availability levels traditionally provided by clustering software.

Featuring several industry firsts, the new software provides a clustered file service for standard Unix platforms enabling assured application service levels and service level management capabilities as well as continuous access to data and the network. In addition, it simplifies administration and lowers costs of ownership by automating application and service creation, as well as many operational tasks.

``The new challenge for our customers is to simplify the operation of their system infrastructure. They are finding themselves spending too much time running their servers and not enough time managing the services or applications they provide,'' said Anil Gadre, Sun's vice president and general manager, Solaris Software. ``The ability of Sun Cluster 3.0 to automate and simplify service management tasks will redefine the way dot-com companies use clustering technology and allow the Solaris operating environment to increase its lead as the choice for the service-driven network.''

Sun Cluster 3.0 is available immediately. Prices start at $2,000 per server. Additional information can be found at
