Digital pay-TV company Sky Italia has always shown a strong commitment to innovation. To continue using the most advanced technology, it recently decided to migrate an infrastructure supporting business-critical applications from the Oracle Sun SPARC* environment, implemented during its start-up in 2003, to one based on the HP Superdome2* server and powered by the IntelÂ® ItaniumÂ® processor 9300 series. This migration has brought a number of benefits including a 50 percent decrease in processing times and power consumption.
