Re: [solarisx86] A dumb question; and another one, less technical this time
- First questions first:
What type of servers do they have (you mention Ultra24s)?
Is there a need to upgrade?
Do they still have support contracts?
And, yes, there is a special research&development pricelist, but, as others
mentioned, it's best to ask an Oracle sales rep (or partner).
