Sun Microsystems, Inc. and Sybase, Inc. announced that they have extended their alliance to include Sybase support for the Solaris Operating System (OS) on the x64 platform. Through this agreement, Sun and Sybase will collaborate on joint development and performance engineering activities to help customers with their migrations to cost-effective computing platforms.  Sybase plans to provide support for the Solaris OS on the x64 platform in its Adaptive Server Enterprise, Sybase IQ and Adaptive Server Anywhere data management solutions.

"This agreement is all about choice and flexibility," said Stephen Borcich, vice president of Partner Marketing for Sun Microsystems. "This is particularly true for financial services companies, who can choose highly scalable SPARC systems from Sun and others, Sun's new cost competitive x64 Opteron Systems or x86 systems from over 275 hardware partners certified to run Solaris 10."
