Sun Microsystems Wednesday announced new additions to its server and workstation lines with the Sun Fire And Sun Ultra.

The company debuted Sun Netra blade servers and claimed a nearly 20 percent performance improvement for its Sun Fire workgroup servers. They will use Sun’s own UltraSPARC IIIi processors and Solaris OS.

Sun said its new Ultra 25 Workstation sports a 300 percent increase in performance, and comes preinstalled with Solaris 10 OS, Sun Studio, Sun Java Studio Creator and Sun Java Studio Enterprise.

The company also said its Sun Fire T1000 system now features 23 percent higher availability and up to 300 percent higher performance for disk operations.

Sun said it will also announce “soon” new Sun Fire systems based on the Rev F version of Advanced Micro Devices’ Opteron processor.
