Sun Microsystems, Inc., and Metapa Inc., a leading provider of high-performance analytic infrastructure software, announced last week that E! Networks, a producer and distributor of entertainment news and lifestyle-related programming, has chosen to deploy their integrated data warehousing solution. E! Networks, leveraging Metapa's Cluster DataBase (CDB) solution for the Sun Solaris Operating System (OS) on Sun Fire servers based on AMD Opteron processors, aims to achieve unprecedented price/performance results for its enterprise class data warehouse system.

The combined Metapa and Sun solution at E! Networks can integrate both detailed online and offline operational data into a single, consolidated data warehouse capable of supporting sophisticated business level reporting and analysis. Additionally, the solution can provide the Business Intelligence infrastructure necessary for key E! Networks executives and television programming personnel to better understand and optimize programming for both its customers and partners.

Metapa's CDB delivers query acceleration and storage capacity by enabling companies to deploy terabyte scale data warehouses (one-to-many) on clusters of low-cost servers, while ensuring enterprise-class reliability, linear scalability and easy integration with existing IT environments. Sun's UNIX-based OS stands as a continuation of Sun's strategy to increase affordability, availability, security and manageability of the network computer.
