InfoWorld has announced its 2007 Technology of the Year Awards, and Sun was named in multiple categories:

“InfoWorld’s Test Center reviewed the Sun Fire X4200 in February, giving it an 8.7 out of 10 — an excellent rating. The review found that the Sun Fire X4200 “is a serious server in a seriously well-designed package.” In December InfoWorld published its review of the Sun Fire X4600 scoring an 8.9 out of 10 — another excellent rating. The review calls the Sun Fire X4600 “an extraordinarily well- engineered server.” Under the Best Hardware category the Sun Fire X4200 and X4600 have been awarded with respective titles “Best Server” and “Best High-Performance Server” of the Year — for 2007.”

“Sun also takes a prestigious title from this year’s InfoWorld Technology Awards in the Application Development category. Securing the Java IDE Innovator Award — Sun’s NetBeans 5.5 is called out in InfoWorld’s 2007 report as “an intuitive, well-designed IDE with superb collaboration and remarkable features.” The review on Sun’s NetBeans 5.5 notes, “NetBeans already had the most complete collaboration features among IDE platforms. This year it added important new modules such as Matisse, the most advanced Java software GUI designer available today, and complete support for Java Platform Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 5. NetBeans is likely all that developers of enterprise Java applications will need.”
