Sun Microsystems has created two hardware and software bundles as part of an initiative to drive server virtualisation downstream into the SMB space.

The solutions pair Sun Fire X4150, X4250, or X4450 servers and 7210 unified storage systems with VMware ESX, and Sun Fire X4250 server and Sun Storage J4200 systems with Microsoft Hyper-V.

The solutions are said to allow customers ‘to build an agile IT environment that can quickly meet the changing needs of their businesses through rapid virtual server deployment, reducing costs and achieving optimal performance through maximum server and storage utilisation’, according to David Simmons, senior director, mid-market business, Sun Microsystems.

"Sun has been helping the world's largest companies with virtualization for years. Now we’re bringing these capabilities our SMB customers," he said.

Sun's SMB solutions portfolio is also said to include Windows Essential Business Server (EBS), Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 upgrade, MySQL database and Sun's secure web server solution.
