Get Real-Time Performance with Oracle TimesTen

Watch as these Business and IT professionals work together to achieve real-time performance with Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database in their application tier to deliver real-time caching of application data from an Oracle Database.

Bank of America slashes storage footprint 50% with Oracle Advanced Compression

Listen to Satish Zalavadia, Senior DBA at Bank of America describes how Oracle Advanced Compression and Secure Files helped them accommodate future data growth by reducing their database storage footprint by 50% saving money and improving query performance by 80%.


What part of Oracle Exadata 'petabyte scalability' don't you understand?

Oracle Exadata Database Machine delivers extreme performance for Data Warehousing and OLTP workloads, It also provides the 'petabyte scalability' required to cost effectively manage the sheer volume of data collected and stored by enterprise customers.

Read how these customers address 'petabyte scalability' with Oracle Exadata Database Machine in their environments:

Turkcell manages 100 terabytes of compressed data—that's a whopping petabyte of uncompressed raw data—on Oracle Exadata. When combined with the analytics capabilities of Oracle Advanced Analytics, they can now complete antifraud analysis for large amounts of call-data records in just a few hours.

SK Telecom became the first mobile communications operator in Korea to introduce rate plans with unlimited data usage. This led to a large increase in data volumes and, as a result, the company’s data analysis and verification processes became more complex. On average 40 billion transactions are processed each day on Oracle Exadata Database Machine enabling the company to store 1 petabyte of raw data. Now they can provide detailed, accurate information about their customers’ roaming data usage while ensuring high availability and performance to support billions of transactions a day.

MetLife Saves With Active Data Guard and Advanced Compression

MetLife, a leading global provider of insurance, annuities and employee benefits, has been an Oracle customer and user for many years, and uses Oracle technology for many of its mission-critical applications. On top of the Oracle Database, they deployed business applications from Oracle such as PeopleSoft, Enterprise Performance Management solutions, and OBIEE.
For failover scenarios, MetLife deployed Oracle Data Guard a while back, and soon realized that with new capabilities introduced with Oracle Active Data Guard, internal global reporting functionality can easily be improved by generating reports from the open, and otherwise idle, standby database.
To increase internal resource utilization even more, MetLife made the decision to use Oracle Advanced Compression, that reduced disk space considerably for archiving requirements and production systems alike. In production environments, the savings were even multiplied as it also reduced the amount of data that gets shipped over the wire to, and stored at, every standby database.

Watch Margaret Maglione, Director of Oracle Implementation, explain how her team realized just that:

In addition, learn from Asha Santosh, Lead DBA in the Oracle Implementation Team at MetLife, how she and her team achieved all this:

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!
