Atos IT Outsourcing Services are optimized by Oracle SuperCluster

SOURCE: Oracle Hardware Blog

ATOS, a leading international IT services outsourcing provider, has implemented Oracle SuperCluster as a complete, high-availability, multi-tenancy infrastructure, increasing performance, increasing profits, and providing higher services levels to customers.
With Oracle SuperCluster support for multi-tenancy through virtualization, and Oracle Exadata Storage engineered and performance optimized, ATOS significantly increased batch processing with more than 10x more IOPS with Oracle Exadata Storage X3-2.

The optimized Oracle SuperCluster engineered system includes Oracle Exadata, Oracle Solaris 11, ran batch jobs 1.5x faster as compared to the former IBM AIX platform, which was consolidated to Oracle SuperCluster.

With Oracle SuperCluster ECC DRAM providing more memory per processor,  it is ideal for in-memory workloads and large vertically scaled multi-tenancy databases and applications including SAP.

Business benefits are significant, with profit margins are projected to increase through a significant reduction of software license costs by 1.5x due to the higher performance and capacity of Oracle SuperCluster. Rapid provisioning increased ATOS service levels, and requires fewer resources to manage incident services.  

As a single Oracle Engineered System, Oracle SuperCluster is intrinsically high-availability, tested and integrated by Oracle, and was rapidly deployed.
