CARFAX Improves Performance w/Oracle Database 11g
By jbrust on Aug 03, 2010
Many of us are familiar with CARFAX, and if you've bought or sold a used car, you've likely used them to get a vehicle history report (thanks to the most comprehensive 'vehicle history' database in North America). The other day I caught up with Daniel Smith, Senior DBA at CARFAX, and we talked about how Oracle Database 11g and Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) helps them meet their performance and availability SLAs. Oracle RAC also allows their systems to scale as the company grows and eliminates the need for unutilized hardware. Listen to this podcast to hear the details and other things they are doing.
