Sun Microsystems co-founder Andy Bechtolsheim is back at Sun and led the design of the new x86 based Galaxy Sun servers.
The Galaxy line of servers uses AMD Opteron CPUs. Sun for a long time did not offer x86 based servers and got hit big time by missing the boat on that trend.
Sun is now on 6th place in the x86 server sales. The Galaxy line should help to push Sun further ahead in this market.
Andy Bechtolsheim's return to Sun reminds me on Steve Jobs going back to Apple. It worked for Apple, maybe it does for Sun too. CNet has you covered on this topic with an report on the Sun Galaxy servers, a interview with Andy Bechtolsheim and a photo gallery of the new servers.
