Trans-Tasman landing for Sun Startup Essentials

Sun Microsystems has launched its Startup Essentials programme on both sides of the Tasman.

The global initiative was introduced in 2006 and aims to hasten start-ups’ growth by discounting open source software, storage, and other hardware and services that can be quickly deployed. Sun’s engineers will also provide free technical expertise.

To qualify, companies must have been operating for less than six years or have fewer than 150 staff.

Australia/New Zealand director of partner sales, Sam Srinivasan, says the programme is reliant on Sun partners participating and it has been working with a number of resellers here to bring the programme to market.

Sun says it is targeting companies that need sophisticated and scalable technology. About 100 businesses internationally are currently participating in the scheme.
