Opteron-based server along with support and services for a rate of $1,499 per year for three years.

Officials of Santa Clara, Calif., company said the promotion includes Sun's Java Studio Enterprise tools suite; Sun Studio compilers for C, C++ and Fortran development; the Solaris 9 operating system for x86; a Sun Fire V20z Server; support; and access to online information and forums.
