Sun Ultra 1

Back to My Setups

The Ultra 1 is used as a file server and also as a web server for hosting local copies of "The Big Book of Amiga Hardware". It also holds my bookmarks page so I can access it from any browser on any machine. It runs the UNIX operating system Solaris 9 which is the latest version of Solaris and I have found it to be an extremely stable operating system. It has never crashed on me which unfortunately I can't say about AmigaOS and even Linux. The Creator3D designation is important because it's supplied with a much more advanced Framebuffer than the standard Ultra 1 which uses a UPA slot instead an SBus slot. It also has a Multimedia Interface instread of an AUI connector.
