Listen to Satish Zalavadia, Senior DBA at Bank of America describes how Oracle Advanced Compression and Secure Files helped them accommodate future data growth by reducing their database storage footprint by 50% saving money and improving query performance by 80%.


What part of Oracle Exadata 'petabyte scalability' don't you understand?

Oracle Exadata Database Machine delivers extreme performance for Data Warehousing and OLTP workloads, It also provides the 'petabyte scalability' required to cost effectively manage the sheer volume of data collected and stored by enterprise customers.

Read how these customers address 'petabyte scalability' with Oracle Exadata Database Machine in their environments:

Turkcell manages 100 terabytes of compressed data—that's a whopping petabyte of uncompressed raw data—on Oracle Exadata. When combined with the analytics capabilities of Oracle Advanced Analytics, they can now complete antifraud analysis for large amounts of call-data records in just a few hours.

SK Telecom became the first mobile communications operator in Korea to introduce rate plans with unlimited data usage. This led to a large increase in data volumes and, as a result, the company’s data analysis and verification processes became more complex. On average 40 billion transactions are processed each day on Oracle Exadata Database Machine enabling the company to store 1 petabyte of raw data. Now they can provide detailed, accurate information about their customers’ roaming data usage while ensuring high availability and performance to support billions of transactions a day.
