Without proper planning and precaution, an enterprise can experience disastrous security intrusions that can result in lost revenue and decreased productivity, especially from today's new breed of debilitating online security threats.
However, says Lodewyk de Beer, solutions architect at Sun Microsystems SA, with Sun's Secure Web Server Reference Architecture, running on Sun's low-cost x86 systems, businesses have access to improved performance and decreased complexity with greater Web security on pre-tested and proven solutions.
"This Secure Web Server Reference Architecture has been updated to include the Sun Fire V20z AMD Opteron processor-based server and runs Solaris for x86 Operating System (OS) and the Sun Java System Web Server 6.1.
"It is designed to speed the implementation of Web-serving solutions without the risks of compromise associated with competing platforms," De Beer explains.
In addition, the new architecture identifies the equipment and software required for given traffic loads as well as configurations. The architecture documents the optimal balance between security settings, configurations and performance.
A blueprint for solution design, the Secure Web Server Reference Architecture equips Sun's iForce partners with the means to deliver pre-tested, pre-integrated secure Web serving solutions, minimising the time and risk associated with technology deployments.
