Sun Microsystems: Ready for a comeback?


Author: Shawn Sheik

After a two-year-long series of weak quarterly reports, Sun Microsystems may be on the edge of a new beginning as it puts into action the key components for a bounceback.

Sun’s future may not be as bleak anymore. The company has been reporting losses in the nine-figure range for more than a year. However, the release of Solaris 10 and the latest management and product strategy transformations may stir up the much-needed and long-awaited market activity in its favor. The Solaris 10 release is the company’s most important offering in a very long time. Many of the functional upgrades and features offered by Solaris 10 will be of huge value to a wide range of customers.
