Bank of America Reduces Storage Footprint 50%

A few weeks ago I spoke with Satish Zalavadia, Senior DBA at Bank of America. Listen as he describes how Oracle Advanced Compression reduced their storage footprint by 50%. This huge reduction in storage utilization meant that no additional storage was needed to accommodate their data growth for one year even as their clients introduced more applications running against the database. In addition, they saw an 80% improvement of query performance as a result of storing LOB data in Secure Files.

Choose a smarter approach to manage data growth

You can reduce storage costs AND improve performance when you choose Oracle’s approach to managing data growth. Read how Information Processing Center reduced their operational database resources by more than 400% using Oracle Advanced Compression. Likewise, MetLife found that it increased the performance of its PeopleSoft reporting environment by reducing the time to complete certain nightly extracts from 12 hours to four.  Deutsche Börse AG used a combination of compression and partitioning to reduce their storage requirements which had grown by 50% to 24 terabytes and achieve optimal performance by partitioning fact tables with more than 1 terabyte. Health Market Science also used this combination to manage data growth more cost effectively.

To learn how they did it, listen to Oracle Database expert
Kevin Jernigan describe how to reduce your database storage footprint and costs.

Use these simple tools to help you compare the savings with and without compression and assess your storage environment for optimal performance and cost savings.

Oracle's approach to managing data growth is just one of  three compelling reasons to upgrade to Oracle Database 11g.

Have a happy and prosperous New Year!

BT Operate Standardizes on Oracle Database 11g for Consolidation onto a Private Cloud

This case study describes how BT Operate, the internal IT and network management division of British Telecommunications plc is consolidating their database infrastructure onto a Database as a Service (DaaS) private cloud using Oracle Database 11g. 

If the complexity of managing thousands of databases that represent a mix of products, versions, operating systems, and hardware is making application deployment in your database environment too slow, operations too expensive, resource utilization too low, and the workload on your IT team too high, you'll gain the insight you'll need about Oracle Database 11g features and options that can help you achieve greater agility and innovation in your cloud environment.

BT Operate can now manage 30% more databases with 20% fewer database administrators while reducing the deployment time for a fully-tested, highly available (HA) database from two to three weeks down to only 19 minutes or a 1000x improvement.
