Sun expands portfolio to include scalable IPTV platform

Sun Microsystems is expanding its Sun Streaming System product portfolio to create an IPTV platform that can scale seamlessly from 100 to 160,000 simultaneous streams.

Joining the Sun Fire X4950 Streaming Switch are new server and storage platforms for small to mid-scale streaming of television and IP-based video. Sun also announced Sun Streaming Software Release 2, which leverages the Solaris 10 Operating System (OS), enabling customers to scale economically from 500 to more than 1.5 million subscribers, and from 200 to more than 1 million hours of content.

The Sun Streaming System includes: the 1U Sun Fire X4150 server powered by Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors; the 4U Sun Fire X4600 M2 server powered by AMD Opteron processors; and the Sun StorageTek 2530 Array.
