Yeti song as performed by the Vienna
Symphony Orchestra In a stimulating meeting of two worlds, the new with the
established classic, the 100-year-old Vienna Symphony Orchestra has recorded a
classical version of the Yeti-song.’ In both cases its about playing –
Yetisports in the online community and the orchestra in the concert hall’, said
Mag. Christoph Kufner of the Vienna symphony.
The technology behind Yetisports To
deal with the massive demand for the new games at Yetisports, IBM has kitted-out
the Edelweiss medienwerkstatt GesmbH with a new generation of server. The x346
model. ‘ This IBM eServer xSeries has been running full-throttle for a whole
year, day and night, without a single problem’, explains Gregor Sideris, Manager
of Enterprise System Sales Austria. ‘ That is the equivalent of putting ones
foot to the floor, down the highway, for a year. Without stopping for fuel.’
Since one year the Internet Service Provider Silver Server has been ensuring the
smooth-running of Yeti-games. ‘Of all the servers which we provide, the Yeti is
the one responsible, by-far, for the most transfer of data’, explains Oskar
Obereder, manager at Silver-Server. ‘All-together the penguin throwing
disciplines are responsible each month for the decoding of 100 teraBytes – that
is 1.000 gigabytes , or the content of around 50 billion written pages.’
