Database as a Service Minnesota Style

This is a great story that's worth repeating of how the University of Minnesota began offering database as a service a few years ago as a way of providing database services to the University’s colleges, departments, and administrative offices.

In typical Minnesota style, the University of Minnesota was way out in front of the DBaaS trend. The school's database sprawl was becoming more difficult to maintain and manage with 215 databases running on 40 servers, and requiring the equivalent of four to five full-time DBAs to manage it all.

The University's IT team decided to consolidate and centralize databases on two Oracle Exadata Database Machines -one for production workloads and the other for testing and development, reducing the number of databases from 215 to 25, and servers from 40 to 8. 

As part of the consolidation initiative, the University began offering DBaaS to support their business applications on campus which included Oracle PeopleSoft for HR, financial management, administration-and Web sites. When new business needs arise at the University, they can satisfy the requirements almost immediately with database as a service, rather than go through a time consuming database acquisition and deployment process one project at a time.

As an early adoptor if DBaaS, the University is evaluating Oracle Database 12c as the potential next step with its multitenant architecture and pluggable databases, making it even easier to offer database services.
