Error-free performance at Beijing 2008 Olympic Games
26 August 2008
Lenovo today that its multi-layered computing solution consisting of more than 30,000 pieces of equipment and nearly 600 engineers provided smooth, error-free performance at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.
The company was the worldwide partner and exclusive computing equipment provider during the 17-day event.
Lenovo provided computing solutions for 630 competitive events, 302 medal events, seven different event sites, 39 competition venues and 17 data centers.
The solution included laptop and desktop PCs and monitors, touch screens, servers, desktop printers and the Lenovo engineering team that kept all system operational.
The headquarters for Lenovo's core engineering team was the Technology Operations Center (TOC) inside the Digital Building on the Olympic Green.
From within the TOC, Lenovo engineers monitored all venues to make sure equipment was in place and operating correctly.
Lenovo also maintained hundreds of servers in the Digital Building responsible for handling hundreds of thousands of requests per second. During the Games, servers processed more than 23 million live queries.
For an additional layer of redundancy Lenovo also had fleets of engineers stationed at each venue.
Lenovo also operated seven Internet lounges (i.lounges) for the Games, offering 260 PCs with broadband Internet access to athletes, coaches and the media, averaging daily traffic of about 3,000 visitors.
The i.lounges and service centers will be open and staffed by Lenovo during the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games, which take place between 6 to 17 September, and for which Lenovo is also the exclusive equipment provider.
