Sun Supplies Servers & Storage for Fox, HBO

Fox Television Stations is deploying Sun Microsystems' Solaris 10 operating system (OS), servers, storage, and service to power its new centralized sales, traffic and programming management system. The project, including integration with neighboring systems and the gradual rollout across all Fox Television stations is planned to take less than three years.

Separately, Home Box Office (HBO) has evolved its digital broadcast architecture exclusively using Sun Microsystems's workflow and storage technologies. HBO has standardized on Sun technology to make a transition from standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) video tape-based environments to a server-based storage and play-out system supporting its bi-coastal network of 28 SD and four HD channels as well as on-demand distribution.
