WEARE, N.H., Aug 6 /PRNewswire/ — University students, teachers and nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply for donated Sun Microsystems servers and related equipment as part of Acclinet Corp.'s technology grant program.

Applicants must detail what equipment they're seeking how they'd use it. The first recipient chosen by a committee, will be announced early this fall. The program focuses on two groups: university students/teachers learning or teaching UNIX and open-source technologies and nonprofit organizations dedicated to bettering the lives of children.

"We are committed to furthering the UNIX and open-source communities through the programs we create and support," Acclinet Vice President William Sweeney said. "One of our core focuses is the educational community, universities and their student populations who teach, learn and promote both the UNIX and open-source communities."

Sweeney added, "With nonprofit organizations struggling to obtain funding in a challenging economic environment, Acclinet is committing hardware and support resources to aid those organizations in furthering their missions."

Available equipment in the donation pool includes entry-level Sun servers and Sun workstations such as Sun V210, Sun V240, Sun V440, Sun 1500, Sun 1500, Sun 2000, Sun 2500 and Sun Ultra 40, Sun Ultra 45 as well as enterprise-class solutions such as Sun Fire servers from E4800 to E15K.
