SunHELP always has been, and always will be, a not-for-profit venture.
As of 2013 I no longer run ads on the site, but contributions of hardware or software that I can use in providing this resource is always welcome.
SunHELP site grew out of an extensive collection of Sun and Solaris-related bookmarks I kept while working for Data Foundry (originally Texas.Net). I got so many questions and inquiries about Sun-related items that I registered a domain name and turned the Sun Q&A section of my web page into a stand-alone site in mid-1997. For 17 years now, SunHELP has provided news, information, mailing lists, and hosting for other Sun-related projects.
Currently, due to licensing and support pricing changes at Oracle, I’m not able to afford to legally run the site on the OS that it supports!
SunHELP runs on a homebuilt AMD x86-based system I built running Debian Linux.
In the past, SunHELP has run on machines graciously donated by Sun Microsystems.
We’ve also run on servers provided by Meridian Leasing, AnySystem, and Acclinet.
Past power conditioning and battery backup was provided by Power Protection Partners.
Remote management hardware is from Logical Solutions.
System and service monitoring from up.time software.
Thanks to my friends at OnRamp Access, Inc. in Austin, Texas, for providing colocation services from 2000-2010!
