EarthLink, a customer of Sun Microsystems servers since its inception, has upgraded its servers with Sun's next-to-top-end Sun Fire 6800 systems, the companies said Thursday. The two 6800s, with 24 processors and 48GB of memory apiece, are replacing two 20-processor E6500 systems for the job of running 22 Progress Software databases used in EarthLink's most demanding task, handling customer registration, billing and managing accounts, said Ron Williams, enterprise production services manager for EarthLink. The systems--which will be arranged in a "fail-over" configuration using software from Veritas so one can take over if the other crashes--handle about 8,000 to 10,000 transactions per second, he said. In addition, EarthLink replaced its StorEdge 5200 storage system with a top-end StorEdge 9960 and storage networking switches from Brocade Communications, Williams said. EarthLink overall has about 250 Sun servers, he added.
Veritas Software, Oracle and Sun Microsystems, in their collective "VOS" effort to outflank Microsoft, have released an assemblage of products tuned to work well together. The products include Sun's higher-end E6500 server, its A5200 disk array, its Solaris 8 operating system, Veritas' file system and Oracle's database, the companies said Tuesday. A lower-end version with Sun's rack-mountable 420R server also is available. Under the initiative, the three companies offer collaborative support in an effort to resolve customer problems more quickly.
