    Virtualization on T5240

      I have an opportunity to receive some SUN T5240 servers for no cost. I would like to know if these T5240 can be used similar to Intel based hardware with vSphere? I am familiar with Intel based hardware with VMWare hypervisor and management software since that is what I used for virtualization. From my reading, Oracle has Oracle VM server and Oracle VM Manager which seems very similar (in functionality) to ESXi and their GUI client. I got some feedback from a friend who said that SUN does not support virtualization and cannot used in this way. Can you someone confirm and deny this?

          Your friend is very misinformed. Sun's SPARC servers have supported virtualization since 2007.

          To learn about Oracle VM Server for SPARC, start here: http://www.oracle.com/us/technologies/virtualization/oracle-vm-server-for-sparc/overview/index.html
