Hewlett-Packard and Sun Microsystems -- fierce competitors when it comes to hardware sales -- unveiled an expanded partnership on Wednesday that will see HP become a key distributor of Sun's Solaris operating system.

HP will distribute and provide support for Solaris on its ProLiant server and blade platforms and the two companies will also work on integrating Solaris 10 with HP's Insight software.

HP and Sun are scheduled to reveal more about the partnership during a webcast Wednesday.
