Liverpool Direct Limited (LDL) is helping transform the way citizens in Liverpool access public services. A public/private enterprise of its kind, LDL's vision is to offer "joined-up government" whereby everybody has access to new technology for communicating with Liverpool City Council and its Business Units. Among LDL's responsibilities are contact centers, benefits services, human resources and payroll, and revenue services.

The organization was aiming to increase computing power and capacity, reduce operational and management costs, cut power and cooling costs and increase space available for scaling hardware platform.

Sun Professional Services provided LDL with a turnkey solution that included a high-performance, cost-effective platform based on Sun SPARC Enterprise T2000 servers running the Solaris 10 OS, Solaris Cluster, and Sun Interim Operations Management to ensure a successful adoption of the new technology.

"Liverpool Direct Limited couldn't deliver Solaris-based shared services without the Sun SPARC Enterprise T-Series servers running the Solaris 10 OS," noted Frank Oakley, Solutions Architect, LDL. "The platform has reduced our costs and doubled processing performance."

ServerWatch Tip of the Trade: Stuffing Containers on Solaris 10


ServerWatch posted a positive tutorial about using Solaris Containers as a strong alternative to virtualization for software development. The reviewer, Carla Schroder, provides an overview of Solaris Containers, followed by a how-to for installing and running individual web servers on each instance of the containers.

Carla specifically highlights the performance of the containers, "Sun's GUI control panel for Containers is good. Creating, provisioning and destroying Containers is pretty easy. Performance is exceptional — while there are some high-availability tweaks that you get only with genuine Sun hardware, it's still a screamer on x86-64."
