Sun Delivers Performance Boost to University of Central Florida
By chhandomay on May 01, 2009
University of Central Florida
offers more than 220 degree programs to
50,000 students and is served by more than 5,000 faculty and staff who
have relied on Sun servers, storage, software, and services for more
than 10 years.
In 2007, UCF sought to increase the capability and scalability of its Oracle/PeopleSoft platform to meet growing computational and storage demands. This upgrade required a high-performance storage area network in addition to related system upgrades, all of which needed to be in place for the Fall 2008 semester to facilitate class scheduling and registration.

|UCF ultimately selected the Sun
StorageTek 9990V system and said they chose it because it was "best
breed" in its product class for both performance and reliability.
For its PeopleSoft application servers UCF chose eight Sun SPARC
T5220 servers, and five Sun Fire T2000
UCF is pleased with the fast operation of the new solution, which offers a 10-fold improvement in overall performance. Robert Yanckello, Chief Technology Officer at UCF says "Even during peak loads of the semester's first week, when many students are adding and dropping classes, everything moved smoothly. The systems are simple to manage and use, and Sun has been easy to do business with."
