HBO picks Sun storage

This is the piece of news about my company and my favorite movie channel so thought of sharing it...

Sun Microsystems Inc. announced that Home Box Office (HBO) is now exclusively using Sun's workflow and storage products. HBO used Sun to make a transition from a video tape-based environment to a server-based storage and play-out system that enables high speed and 99.999% reliability to support its bicoastal network of 28 standard definition and four high-definition channels, as well as on-demand distribution. The new digital content management and delivery infrastructure is comprised of Sun StorEdge NAS systems, Solaris 10 OS, Sun Fire servers, and Sun Java integration with Grass Valley Profile and K2 play-to-air systems from Thomson.

Isn't it cool :)
