AT&T Selects Sun Servers and Storage Arrays for U-verse

AT&T will use Sun Microsystems' servers and modular arrays for its U-verse IPTV service. Specifically, AT&T has decided to deploy Sun Fire X4600 servers and Sun StorageTek storage arrays, which will provide access to the U-verse TV Video-on-Demand library.

The servers and arrays will be rolled out in new deployments of IP-video super hub offices and IP-video hub offices in the AT&T U-verse network.

The AT&T solution from Sun will also include Sun Fire X4500 servers, which combine the performance of a four-way Sun x64 server and the highest storage density available. AT&T will also use Sun Support Services and Sun Professional Services to help manage the system. Financial terms were not disclosed.
