Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Sun is beefing up the capacity of its main Java development site to resolve intermittent access problems that have irked users over recent days.

Since Tuesday, several Reg readers have complained that java.sun.com is either down or not working. A test on the site showed that response times were unusually sluggish and downloads slow.

A spokeswoman for Sun acknowledged that the site was operating below par. She said the infrastructure had to be upgraded to cope with extra demand. Sun hopes the extra capacity will return the site to peak performance, even though it's not exactly sure why the site is running slowly at present.

In a statement posted on the site, Sun said: "In addition to troubleshooting the root cause we are adding seven additional Sun servers to assist with capacity needs. We have also changed load distribution to include additional locations. These actions will boost performance and reliability."

The company thanks developers for their "patience and continued loyalty" as it works to restore the site to full health. ®
