theglobe.com Speeds Up Service

Looking to accelerate its response time to subscribers, theglobe.com Wednesday teamed up with Network Appliance, Inc. to speed service without adding infrastructure.

theglobe.com will implement Network Appliance NetCache, an appliance designed to do the work of five standard Web servers. It improves response times, and guarantees freshness of content across distributed sites, the company said. It also can be implemented with intranet systems.

"NetCache has enabled us to handle significantly more traffic by increasing our capacity and allowing us to decrease response time for our customers," said Dean Daniels, chief operating officer at theglobe.com.

"We selected the NetCache appliance because its high performance architecture can scale smoothly with our rapidly growing capacity requirements."
