Workgroup’s dedicated Sun division, Horizon, has released the details behind a recently announced Sun initiative – called the Sun Eco Advantage Program (EAP) – that will provide members with the tools, resources and training needed to build their own eco IT practices.

So says Mandre Stander, marketing manager of Horizon, who adds that this program will enable Sun’s worldwide partners to deliver a comprehensive set of products and services to meet growing customer demand for energy-efficient IT strategies and solutions while increasing revenue-generating opportunities.
“As companies face rising energy costs and look to deploy more energy-saving technologies, they are seeking partners who can deliver energy-efficient products, as well as assist with consulting and integration projects,” says Stander.
“Sun is well positioned to provide the proven methodologies and resources for partners to build eco IT services that will reduce customers’ energy, cooling and space costs. This new program provides Sun Partner Advantage members with exclusive access to Sun’s comprehensive portfolio of eco services and products, including Sun servers, such as the new Sun SPARC Enterprise T5140 and T5240 servers, the virtualised Solaris Operating System and scalable archive products.”
The EAP resources will give Sun partners the capabilities needed to delivery high value eco services. The program is designed for Sun partners that have SPARC-based server customers, data centre integration expertise and consulting capabilities.
"As part of EAP and through Sun’s Partner Advantage Portal, partners will have access to a wealth of content, including specialised training modules, assessment services and implementation methodologies,” Stander concludes.
