About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.

    They don’t seem to support Solaris x64 or any of you hardware… Are they planning to?

    ScaleMP does support the Sun x64 blades. Their press release says so. They do not support Solaris x64 on these blades. If you desire support for Solaris x64, please let us know and what the potential business opportunity is for Sun.

  3. I assume that the Solaris MPO feature (Memory Placement Optimization) will be very beneficial for this architecture, which is highly NUMA.
    Solaris on vSMP will be an interesting basis for accelerating applications.
