In this podcast you'll hear Sudhi describe the performance the challenges in their existing storage environment and how the Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Direct NFS improved their database performance and doubled the bandwidth to their legacy storage systems.

Last summer we introduced Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Multitenant. Over the past several months we've shared some impressive benchmarks and reports that detail how pluggable databases allow organizations to rapidly build their own Database as a Service environments that take advantage of:
- Rapid Provisioning
- Simple Database Tiering
- Managing Many Databases as One
e-DBA recently deployed Oracle Multitenant for their own Database as a Service environment and the results are nothing short of impressive.
They have achieved greater agility in standing up new database environments while reducing operational expense and complexity. In addition, e-DBA has been able to reduce their hardware spend by 75% thanks to Oracle Multitenant's sophisticated consolidation architecture.
What could Oracle Multitenant do for your organization?
