Sun Microsystems develops business continuity system

ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- US IT company Sun Microsystems has developed a new business continuity system. Enterprise Continuity is designed for companies with multiple data centres, Sun said in October. If one of these sites is unable to function, the system automatically routes transactions to an alternative site.

Enterprise Continuity combines Sun hardware and software with Nortel Networks’ dense wavelength division multiplexing-based OPTera 5200 Multiservice Platform. It also uses dark fibre and Nortel Networks’ optical technologies.

"Today, most industries have a pain point regarding information management, security and business continuance. If their applications go down, they lose money, customers, perhaps even their existence," said Robert Gray, storage systems research director with US IT analysts IDC. "They need a proven solution enabling continuous access to applications and information, while providing both measurable return on investment and long-term cost reduction."
