CAMBRIDGE, UK, 28 February 2008 – Zeus Technology today announced support for Sport Relief, being held between 14th and 16th March 2008, with donations of its award-winning application traffic management software, ZXTM.

Since 2001, Zeus Technology has been an avid supporter of Comic Relief’s two fundraisers - Sport Relief and Red Nose Day - by providing software to ensure the campaign websites perform brilliantly, even during the heaviest periods of online donations and activity. Working with Amazon Web Services and Comic Relief’s technology partners including Oracle and Sun Microsystems, Zeus Technology’s products support the delivery of robust applications to flash-crowds driven by each event’s TV coverage.

Technical Consultant for Comic Relief, Christian Riley, said, “With its capacity to perform seamlessly under heavy load, and another big night coming up, working with Zeus is a natural step.”

“We’re really grateful for the continued support of the world’s best web-serving and load-balancing Technology provider,” said Martin Gill, Comic Relief’s Head of New Media. “Without them we wouldn’t be able to deliver a great donation experience to hundreds of thousands of our donors and that means we wouldn’t be raising as much all-important cash.”

“Zeus is proud to be a Technical Partner and contributor to such a worthy cause as Sport Relief,” stated Paul Brennan, Chairman and CEO of Zeus Technology. “This year, we’re hoping that Sport Relief receives a record number of visits by generous individuals.”
