Oracle experts and Verizon Wireless will share Oracle Database Storage best practices and real life experiences. You will learn:
• How to increase Oracle Database performance and storage efficiency
• Why you should consider Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance ZS3 Series in Oracle Database Environments
• Details on Verizon's real-life success with an Oracle on Oracle implementation
The best part of my job is getting to speak with Oracle customers about their experiences with our products. I recently spoke with Sven Lareum, BI Expert at Heidelberg, the world's leading service and solution provider in
the print media industry about the five-figure cost savings they realized when Oracle Advanced Compression was deployed in their SAP environment.
Not only did they reduce storage consumption by 50%, they dramatically improved report processing times and database operational performance to achieve a total return on their investment in less than 5 months. Pretty amazing.
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%.
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:
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.
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,
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.
