For the fiscal fourth quarter, Sun reported net income of $121 million on revenue of $2.98 billion, compared with net income of $783 million on revenue of $2.07 billion in the same quarter a year ago.

For the year, Sun saw 9% overall server unit growth, with particularly strong growth in one- to eight-way servers, chairman and CEO Scott McNealy says. Unit sales of servers based on Advanced Micro Devices Inc.'s Opteron processor were up 105% for the year.
