MarketWatch.com Deploys SQL Server 2005 to Enhance Scalability, Availability

MarketWatch.com, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dow Jones & Company, helps more than five million unique visitors a month stay abreast of market conditions with its business and investing news, personal finance information, and analytical tools. The company was using Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 database, which had served it well, but needed a solution that would support more than two gigabytes of physical memory. It also wanted to enhance high availability. MarketWatch upgraded to SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition (64-bit), which supports up to 1 terabyte of RAM. The company is evaluating SQL Server 2005 Database Mirroring which allows continuous streaming of the transaction log from a source server to a single destination server to provide complete database synchronization. The company develops its own applications using Microsoft Visual Studio® 2005 and the Microsoft .NET Framework.
