LiveTime Software Announces Customer Service and Support Appliance with Multi-threaded Multi-core Technology
Service management appliance now available with Sun Microsystems’ UltraSPARC® T1 Processor with CoolThreads technology
Newport Beach -- April 3, 2006 -- LiveTime Software, a leading provider of Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) -based service management software, today announced the availability of the LiveTime Appliance based on Sun Microsystems UltraSPARC® T1 processor with CoolThreads technology. Designed exclusively for 64 bit operation, the appliance offers up to eight cores and 32 simultaneous execution threads. The update delivers more than two times the throughput of dual processor Xeon based servers.
Designed for organizations that want a highly tuned, pre-configured, hardened service and support solution with no maintenance, the system is completely plug and play and can be installed within a matter of minutes. Complete with Active Directory, LDAP, and asset management server integration, the LiveTime Appliance fits seamlessly into any enterprise environment. As a completely vendor-neutral solution, customers can utilize the built-in MySQL or PostgreSQL RDBMS, or alternatively connect to any third-party database such as Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, Sybase, and many others.
Available in 4 configurations, including six and eight core UltraSPARC® T1 processors and Dual-Core AMD Opteron® processors, the appliance can be run as a standalone system, application, or database server. It can also be configured in clusters for greater redundancy and failover. “The addition of the new UltraSPARC® T1 multi-threaded, multi-core technology allows LiveTime Service Management solutions to handle more than three times the number of users than was previously possible on dual-core systems,” said George Vossos, chief technology officer of LiveTime Software.
Further demonstrating LiveTime’s leadership in the industry and support for open standards, the LiveTime appliance comes pre-installed with leading open source products, MySQL 4.1, PostgreSQL 8.0, Apache Web Server 2.0, Apache Tomcat 5.5, and Java 5. “LiveTime continues to be a strong supporter of open source software within the enterprise,” said Dr. Darren Williams, CEO of LiveTime Software. “By leveraging best-of-breed open source products, our customers will benefit from LiveTime’s unique performance and fault-tolerant characteristics.”
