Sun helps FAA bringing its air traffic systems into the 21st century
By chhandomay on Sep 25, 2008
times have you had your meticulously planned travel itinerary go astray
because of a system "glitch"? I can remember quite a few times during
the past year alone...
That's going to change!!! Yeay!!!
Well, at least for the glitches that are attributed to FAA. They have upgraded their legacy internal business systems to a new open-systems server and storage infrastructure from us.
Our OpenSolaris/ZFS/Sun Fire server/Thumper storage solutions, which feature built-in, state-of-the-art virtualization capability, is the key building block for the new infrastructure at FAA. And ZFS is playing a major role in their data centers.
ZFS won InfoWorld's BOSSIE award as the best open source storage platform
|"The FAA uses a large quantity
of Sun Solaris servers in a variety of
configurations to support some of our noncritical business
applications," Andy Isaksen, manager of the Communications
Infrastructure Engineering Team for NADIN and architect of the original
mainframe system, said. "ZFS is being
used on at least one service
within the Air Traffic Organization Enterprise Data Center."
