PRNewswire: Allaire and SportSLEUTH.com Team Up for March Madness

Mar 28, 2000, 18:00 (2 Talkback[s])

"Allaire, a leading provider of Internet software and services for companies building their businesses on the Web, today announced that Infonautics, a pioneering provider of personalized information agents and Internet sites, successfully relaunched the Sports Sleuth website and its NCAA Basketball office pool contest using Allaire ColdFusion for Linux."

"In addition to SportsSLEUTH.com, Allaire powers the award winning Sleuth Center sites. Allaire ColdFusion, the industry leading cross platform Web application, was selected for its proven reliability, rapid development capabilities and ability to handle large volumes of site traffic and requests. Infonautics installed and tested the scalability of the more than 20 Linux servers running ColdFusion. Peak loads of up to 1.7 million page views an hour were recognized during scalability testing with no significant performance degradation."

"We are thrilled with the performance of ColdFusion for Linux," said Ram Mohan, Chief Technical Officer of Infonautics. "Sports Sleuth is the first site in our Sleuth Center to have been transitioned to the Linux Platform for increased performance. Sports Sleuth's design requirements needed it to be rated to handle over 1.7 million page views per hour at peak. With the successful launch of Sports Sleuth on ColdFusion for Linux, we are realizing nearly one-and-a-half times the performance from each server. ColdFusion for Linux has proven to be a reliable and robust platform for us."
