This is the recovered Machine Room from 2005. Please don't expect wonders. The look and feel of this site is nine years
old, and so is its code. Some of the functionality has been recovered while the rest of
the site is modernised and restructured. Watch this space!
Sun Microsystems (which initially stood for Stanford University Network) carved itself a market,
namely the workstation market. They went from a tiny little hackish company of four employees in 1982 to the global giant they are today. They've produced a wide selection of workstations using a few different CPUs. After some point, they designed their own CPU standard, the SPARC. Various Sun CPUs implement this standard and there are new versions coming out
almost every year, as well as new machines that use them. Of course, only the older ones
have entries in the database, though all of them are listed (at least
the ones that are in the Sun Hardware FAQ). Anyhow, prepare for large
series of workstations and servers. Please note that the SPARC series
is essentially a continuation of the Sun 4 machines (all SPARC
machines have a Sun 4/xxx model number as well).
