Dalai Lama Success

Kevin Roebuck
Director, Digital Experience

Well, we managed to get a server in place running VX30 at Stanford to broadcast the Dalai Lama's message of hope around the world. Here's the note of thanks from the Tibet Fund. So, to all Sun employees and shareholders, thanks, you too made it possible and deserve credit. Thanks to Tom, Lois and Greg at Stanford too.

The SunFire X4100 was a crusher. Barely breathing hard for the exercise, here are the stats.The x4100 had a 2 dual-core 2.2 Ghz Opterons and 4GB RAM. We were at 2000 streams going pulling about 350 Mbits with about
40% memory utilization and 150% CPU utilization ( out of 400% available). Impressive.

Dear Kevin 

Jon told us that you were responsible for connecting the Maui
webcast team with Stanford and for supplying the hardware for
streaming.  Thank you so much for your help in making His Holiness
the Dalai Lama's public talk and teachings available live.  Tibet
Fund's server couldn't have done this, especially on such short
notice--we really appreciate Sun Micro extending its resources so that
Tibetans and others around the world could see His Holiness in the
moment.  It was a very special visit (I've been involved with
quite a few and none compared to this one for pure heart all around).

Again, many thanks,


Robyn Brentano
Executive Director
The Tibet Fund
