Intershop Has Expanded Its Global E-Commerce Capabilities to Run on Sun’s Solaris 10 Operating System on x86/x64 Platforms

  • Enfinity software running on Solaris delivers high performance e-commerce and impressive ROI.

San Francisco, CA – May 13, 2008 – Intershop Communications, a leading global e-commerce provider for some of the largest e-commerce sites worldwide today announced the availability of its powerful e-commerce software platform, Enfinity Suite, on the Solaris™ 10 Operating System (OS) running on x86/x64 servers.

Sun Microsystems’ 64-bit Solaris 10 OS is one of the world's most popular Unix operating systems running on the leading systems from top server manufacturers. Boasting many innovative technologies and integrated software components as standard, the Solaris 10 OS is a comprehensive platform that includes security and reliability as key requirements and is proven to have achieved a significant reduction in costs and complexity. With its x86 platform support, the Solaris 10 OS also offers astonishing price to performance ratio. Combined with still more innovations from Sun such as Sun xVM and Solaris ZFS, Intershop Enfinity Suite 6 and the Solaris 10 OS make a great combination for companies of any size looking for a secure, stable and rapid return-on-investment (ROI) e-commerce platform.

Historically, Enfinity with the Solaris 10 OS on the SPARC architecture has been utilized by several of Intershop’s large enterprise customers and Intershop has recently seen new momentum in the Linux-x86 combo adoption rate among its medium enterprise solutions.

“Intershop is continuously looking to provide one of the leading industry E-Commerce platforms for our customer-base. Offering our technology on the Solaris 10 OS further enhances the available options for our customer-base in running their E-Commerce solutions utilizing scalable, cost-effective platforms now and in the future.” stated Tjipto Sugijoto, Intershop Director of Consulting Practice.

“The Solaris 10 OS brings leading security, performance, data management, interoperability, virtualization and availability for many companies around the world. The initial tests of the Enfinity Suite 6 utilizing the Solaris 10 OS and x86 have achieved great performance gains that will benefit many enterprises,” said John Renko, eCommerce Manager at Sun Microsystems Inc.
