The entire customer base of Amazon.com could be comfortably accommodated on a single server running Bullant Technology-powered software, claims Bullant chief operating officer Rob Pieterse.
According to Pieterse, who spoke at Internet World 2000 yesterday, a site visitation level of this scale would ordinarily require at least eight conventional servers.
Bullant, which recently returned from a five-day Austrade Silicon Valley eBusiness Mission, yesterday announced its first three technology customers: e-commerce service provider Marketboomer, web conferencing company Grouputer, and US-based medical registry service Eaglehawk.
Bullant provides an architecture on which streamlined software applications can be built, rather than software itself, Pieterse explained.
According to company marketing vice president Viki Forrest, Bullant is in discussion with a number of hardware suppliers, telcos and online content providers as part of its aggressive international partnering initiative.
The primary focus for the partnering program is the US, where Bullant hopes to increase its presence within eight weeks, Forrest said.
In fact, she said, Bullant has already set up office in Silicon Valley.
"Australia is a good testing ground," she explained. "But the market is hottest in the US."
