About Sun Microsystems -

Since its inception in 1982, a singular vision - The Network Is The Computer (tm) - has propelled Sun Microsystems, Inc., to its position as a leading provider of industrial-strength hardware, software and services that power the Internet and allow companies worldwide to dot-com their businesses. With US$ 14.2 billion in annual revenues, Sun can be found in more than 170 countries. America Online acquires Netscape; Sun and AOL to accelerate the growth of e-commerce and develop next-generation Internet devices in a historic three-year alliance.

Sun Microsystems, Inc. is a worldwide provider of products, services and support solutions for building and maintaining network computing environments. The Company sells scalable computer systems, high-speed microprocessors and high performance software for operating network computing equipment and storage products. The Company also provides support, education and professional services. The Company's products are used for many demanding commercial and technical applications in various industries including telecommunications, manufacturing, financial services, education, retail, government, energy and healthcare.

In India, Sun Microsystems has been in the market for over a decade through its business partners and has been present directly for over three years. In this period Sun servers and workstation products have had a tremendous acceptance in the market. IDC rates Sun as the No. 1 vendor in India for the mid-range servers as well as Unix workstations.

The company, which has changed its baseline from `The network is the computer' to `We are the dot in the .com' owes most of its 70 per cent growth over the previous year to the booming dotcom business. It has established its state-of-the-art industrial and allied facility in Bangalore. Sun and its partners constitute a 400-strong team that supports an installed base of more than 15,000 systems.
