By jgelhaus on Jan 23, 2009
New-generation marketing communications agency Volume Ltd. leverages its creative expertise to design, deliver, host, and support online marketing campaigns and multichannel solutions for some of the world’s largest organizations.
Volume’s homegrown .NET and SQL Server-based infrastructure and development tools could no longer scale to meet its ambitious growth plans. Volume gained an almost instant financial return on its investment having taken just two months to migrate 50% of its business to Oracle Database 11g’s grid-based infrastructure platform.
Energy Costs Down 40%
Oracle Database 11g’s automated storage management, advanced compression, and data partitioning features have resulted in more efficient disk usage and enabled Volume to carry out a major hardware refresh. The company has reduced its server inventory by 50% while driving down energy costs by 40% within six months of implementation. “Halving server numbers represents a significant cost saving,” Chris Sykes, Managing Director, Volume Ltd. said. “With energy demands from information processing systems rising all the time, Oracle is helping us benefit from the financial advantages of going green."
“The potential financial benefits of Oracle Database 11g are exponential. Even more importantly, we have won the renewed confidence of our major customers who know that their applications are backed up by the most reliable IT platform available.” - Benoit Alvarez, Divisional Managing Director and Head of Software Development, Volume Ltd.
