Sun adds another degree of connection with LinkedIn

LinkedInShowing its continued momentum in the Web 2.0 space, Sun today announced that LinkedIn, the largest professional networking site, has selected a three-year subscription to Sun’s MySQL enterprise database to support the company’s rapid growth. With a network of more than 25 million professionals in more than 170 industries from around the globe and many more joining daily, LinkedIn turned to Sun when it recognized the need to increase the speed and performance of the open source database that powers its public Web site. LinkedIn uses Sun technologies for much of existing IT infrastructure, including the Solaris(TM) 10 Operating System (OS) and Sun SPARC Enterprise servers. The company also tapped Sun for Solaris Everywhere and MySQL professional services to plan and assist with the upgraded MySQL database deployment, which was completed within just two weeks of signing the deal.

Sun Wins Global Supplier Performance Award from Vodafone

 

Sun was honored for its corporate responsibility program by Vodafone in this year's Global Supplier Performance awards.  Formally named the Vodafone Corporate Responsibility (CR) Engagement Award, it is given in recongition of Sun's commitment to Vodafone's Code of Ethical Purchasing and the company's support of Vodafone's corporate responsibility activities.

In a press release from Vodafone, the managing director of Vodafone's Global Supply Chain said:

"These awards are designed to recognise where our suppliers have demonstrated a spirit of true strategic partnership by understanding Vodafone's needs then going the extra mile to deliver excellent service and value.  In today's competitive market place it is crucial to work with partners that have a deep understanding of our business needs and competitive pressures."
