Letter from the Editor

W
hen I launched the SBus Product Directory in 1992, I realised that the UK was not a big enough market to sustain a SPARC focused publisher. So I started promoting the directory on a worldwide basis.

In the early 1990s there were more SPARC manufacturers in Australia than in the UK, which surprised me given the relative sizes of the two markets.

In those optimistic days before the death of the competitive SPARC workstation market, the Australian company Opentec opened an office in Bristol and became one of the UK's top 5 distributors of SPARC systems selling their own products and also reselling Axil's SPARC systems.

One of the advantages of communicating with Australian customers of my printed directory (before I launched this web site in 1996) was that we spoke the same language - unlike customers in Europe. But the costs of shipping the 1kg book to the other side of the world made it prohibitively expensive for most people except systems integrators and VARs.

Our biggest market is the US, and you'll see that bias reflected in the editorial and advertising. But I hope you still find this information relevant to your own needs down under. - Or are we the ones - who are "down under"?

PS - since 2001 - my main publication has been StorageSearch.com (started in 1998) - which was the first publication to focus on the solid state storage market.
