The Guardian is an internationally renowned U.K. based newspaper.
XCL engineers optimise the internet services platform for the Guardian and Observer newspapers in the testing, pre-deployment, and production environments. These heterogeneous environments comprised of a total of 200+ servers running a mix of Solaris 8, 9, and 10, and RedHat Enterprise 3 and 4. Engineers installated, configured, and maintained various blade-based servers, including Sun B1600 chassis (using B100s blades) and IBM BladeCentres (using HS20 and LS20 blades), along with various Sun V100, V210, E420R, and IBM DL380 servers.
