Customer of the Week: Scripps Networks
By chhandomay on Mar 09, 2008
Scripps Networks easily responds to massive, unpredictable peaks in
demand serving up to 300 million revenue-generating ads per day, by
deploying Sun Fire T2000 and X4600 M2 servers running the Solaris Operating System.
Because Scripps Networks uses a consistent Sun
platform, it is able to run this large IT operation with a small staff
consisting of just 1 administrator for each 50 systems.
According to their Executive Director of Enterprise IT Operations, Bryan Allen, "The Sun platform has been a stable, consistent and reliable platform for us, with good performance and scalability. We are always responding to new requirements as we continue to push the envelope on the Internet. Sun's support has been very valuable in helping us meet day-to-day requirements, as well as new and unique ones."
