Source: Sun Microsystems
Gracenote wanted to implement reliable server technology for 24x7 service and scale to handle 2 billion transactions per month. The challenge was to engage more prompt and reliable support service. Gracenote deployed Sun x64 technology with AMD Opteron processors provides the highest CPU-to-memory rate, and delivers reliable, scalable performance at high transaction speeds, even for heavily multi-threaded applications. Sun support keeps servers running at top performance in widely dispersed co-location facilities.
