Sun Directory Server Provides Infrastructure for Energy Innovators and to Help Reduce Cost
By nwooler on Dec 11, 2008
As President-elect Obama announced his Energy Team yesterday, I was excited for two reasons. One, Steven Chu is a Californian from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and it is nice to see local citizens playing National and Global roles improving our environment. Two, I am proud to work at Sun because a large number of the energy innovators like Argonne Laboratory, which is also a part of the Department of Energy, are using Sun's Software to provide the backbone of innovation within these organizations.
Argonne Laboratory uses Directory Server Enterprise Edition to power their collaboration infrastructure. They also use MySQL, JavaES, OpenSSO Enterprise and Virtualization (e.g. xVM Server) to power their innovation. You can see a great video with David Salbego, Director of IT Infrastructure at Argonne National Labs regarding his experience and business benefits resulting from Sun solutions.
BC Hydro also used OpenSSO Enterprise and Directory Server to reduce cost of providing a web portal for their customers to get interact with their organization. They reduced the use of paper and conserved resources for our environment. You can read about the solution here.
