Funtank, based in New York City, is a leading distributor and publisher of branded online gaming and entertainment. The company owns and operates Candystand.com, the web's premier branded gaming portal which enables millions of users each month to play hundreds of Flash and Shockwave games. Candystand.com runs on the Apache 2.2 Web Server and Apache Tomcat 5.5 Application Server. One of the main challenges for the website is to maintain Apache and Tomcat, which are both critical to the daily operation of Candystand.com. They choose VMware to overcome these challenges. They implemented VMware vFabric Enterprise Ready Server (ERS), the most comprehensive and widely distributed solution for Apache Web and Tomcat Application Server management.
