"IBM today announced that NHL.com, the official Web
site of the National Hockey League, will run its Web site on IBM
Linux systems as part of an overall site-improvement plan. The
Linux-based solution was chosen by Web site managers who demanded
easy, flexible and reliable systems to handle the heavy Web traffic
to the media rich content on the site.
"We wanted to be sure our Web site met the needs of our fans,
particularly during high volume periods such as the Stanley Cup.
Adding Linux to our site architecture has dramatically improved our
manageability and reliability," said Peter DelGiacco, vice
president, information technology, NHL. "We can now more easily
evolve the site as NHL.com continues to grow in popularity."
