Caching vendor Inktomi has announced an alliance with Fujitsu to provide its network software on the latter's server line.
Fujitsu has embedded Inktomi Traffic Server network cache and Traffic Server Media-IXT software into its new Primergy StreamingCache and WebAccelerator appliance lines.
The software caches content at the edge of the network, speeding up the time it takes to access the media content, such as video on demand.
Inktomi's Media-IXT software means that bandwidth levels will be monitored to ensure network performance and reduce the time it takes for streaming media to buffer and appear on screen.
The service will help reduce bandwidth costs by storing content close to users for faster delivery of video on demand, streaming media applications and other web content.
Ted Okazaki, vice president and general manager at Inktomi, said: "As a strategic new original equipment manufacturer [OEM] channel partner for Inktomi, Fujitsu further extends the reach of Inktomi network infrastructure software.
"Together we're providing easy-to-use solutions that allow companies to meet evolving business needs."
Fujitsu joins Compaq, Dell, F5, Hewlett Packard and 3Com as an Inktomi OEM partner, and further extends Inktomi's reach into the network edge with its network infrastructure software.
