Sun Microsystems to build TV service in India

Tata Sky, a joint venture between TATA and STAR, has announced the selection of Sun Microsystems to provide IT Infrastructure solutions and support for the launch of the company’s direct-to-home (DTH) television service in India in mid-2006.

Tata Sky will be powered by a combination of Sun Fire E20K servers running UltraSPARC IV+-based processors and Sun Fire Workgroup servers. The servers will run the Solaris 10 operating system with Sun N1 System Manager to ensure maximum up-time, fault recovery and load management.

In the lead up to the launch, Sun Services will provide installation, engineering expertise and support to Tata Sky. Sun data management products will store, manage and backup all the data on SE9990, SE6130, NAS and tape library.
