Appliance goes live and on time

LiveTime Software, a provider of service management software built on Java 2 Enterprise Edition, has announced the general availability of the LiveTime Appliance. Designed exclusively for 64-bit operation, the appliance has been optimized for high concurrent access, fault tolerance, and security and is based on Sun's Solaris 10 operating system.

Designed for organizations that want a highly tuned, pre-configured, hardened service and support solution with no maintenance, the system is completely plug-and-play and can be installed within a matter of minutes, the company claims. Complete with Active Directory, LDAP and asset management server integration, the LiveTime Appliance fits seamlessly into any enterprise environment. As a completely vendor-neutral solution, customers can use the built-in MySQL or PostgreSQL RDBMS, or alternatively connect to any third-party database such as Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, Sybase and many others.

Available in seven configurations, including single, dual- and dual-core processors on AMD Opteron and the UltraSPARC IIIi processors from Sun Microsystems, the appliance can be run as a standalone system, application or database server.

It can also be configured in clusters for greater redundancy and failover. LiveTime appliance comes pre-installed with MySQL 4.1, PostgreSQL 8.0, Apache Web Server 2.0, Apache Tomcat 5.5 and Java 5.
