Fast-growing online payments outfit InternetCash Corp, has selected Sun StorEdge arrays and Sun Enterprise servers to power its storage infrastructure.
InternetCash cards are pre-paid stored value cash alternatives available for purchase at brick-and-mortar retailers or online at www.internetcash.com. InternetCash works similarly to a pre-paid phone card and is activated by logging on to the InternetCash Web site. Currently, the cards can be used for shopping at 150 online merchant sites
"InternetCash has experienced tremendous growth in just a few months, and it was paramount that their IT infrastructure scale to meet their anticipated growth," says Denise Shiffman, vice president of marketing for Sun Network Storage. "Because Sun has designed scalable products to meet the requirements of the Internet economy, we enable InternetCash to keep up with the high growth demands while providing the uptime that their customers require."
InternetCash's entire storage system is based on 0.4 TeraBytes (TB) of Sun StorEdge A1000 disk arrays, as well as Sun Enterprise 4500, 450 and 250 servers. Additionally, the infrastructure is backed by 1 TB of Sun StorEdge L1000 tape libraries and Sun StorEdge Enterprise NetBackup software, and runs on Sun Solaris Operating Environment.
