Sun confirms vis gear is no more

Earlier this week we pointed to a post over at noticing that Sun’s vis gear had gone missing from the web site. Turns out this wasn’t a mistake; VizWorld has heard back from Sun:

Sun logoSun announced in April the End-of-Life (EOL) of the Sun Shared Visualization and Sun Scalable Visualization software products. Customers will be able to order the products through July 31, 2009. Sun intends to provide service and support until Oct. 2, 2014.

When Sun announced its most recent re-entry into the vis business the biggest concern I heard from potential customers was that they would invest and then the company would pull out of the business again. Turns out that fear was well-founded.
