VNIIA Reduces Database Administrative Time and Effort by 70 Percent, Lowers Costs

All-Russia Research Institute of Automatics (VNIIA), founded in 1954, is part of the state-owned atomic energy corporation ROSATOM. The institute’s core activities include exploration, research and development (R&D), and full-scale product manufacturing. Its efforts focus on nuclear material control and accounting, complex technical-system safety, research and reporting on material behavior under high temperature and shock stress, and nonproliferation of nuclear and radioactive materials. In 2011, VNIIA established its Fundamental and Applied Research Center to extend theoretical research. 

Helped by Oracle and partner Croc, VNIIIA deployed Oracle Enterprise Manager to flexibly manage VNIIA’s multivendor environment, so it can consolidate monitoring, control, diagnostics, and reporting for heterogeneous hardware and software products in a single console.

New Whitepaper on Exalytics Operational Management

Jules Lane, Manageability Solution Architect at Oracle has written two new whitepapers describing the manageaility aspects of the Exalytics platform.

Improved performance and capacity and a more agile project implementation are primary drivers for Exalytics, however, a great additional benefit is the potential to reduce administration and management costs by 20-40% as compared to traditional platforms, hence dramatically reducing the Total Cost of Ownership.

The target audience is operations managers and team leaders and technical architects.

  • Part 1 is sales oriented and discusses the potential offered by Exalytics for more than 20-40% savings in the costs of operational management of Oracle B.I. systems, and what actions should be taken to fully realize it. These relate to people (and their organisation structure), processes and technology.
  • Part 2 is more post sales oriented and has a summary of the key points in Part 1 one but also a detailed discussion of best practices around carrying out the actual administration tasks for each part of the Exalytics stack.

Welcome to the Oracle EMEA Partner Community for Manageability!

Oracle PartnerNetwork

Applications Systems ManagementThe EMEA Partner Community for Manageability is the place where partners in Europe, Middle East and Africa can share experiences and best practices about selling and implementing Oracle Manageability solutions.

You will also receive first-hand information from Oracle on products, training and tools that can help you better market, sell and implement your Manageability projects and services

Who should I join the Community?

  • Community membership is for individuals. If you are working for a company that is an Oracle partner and your job is selling, implementing or supporting Manageability solutions in EMEA then this community is for you.

How is this different from the Oracle Enterprise Manager Knowledge Zone?

  • The Oracle Enterprise Manager Knowledge Zone is the fundamental source of information from Oracle for partners interested in specializing on Oracle Enterprise Manager. It is higly recommended that you get access to the Knowledge Zones related to the product areas of your interest. To get access to any of the Knowledge Zones an application must be completed by the Partner Program Administrator for your company.
  • The Manageability Partner Community complements the Knowledge Zone by providing partners with information which is specific for the EMEA market (market, references, training, events..) and it is also a mechanism to share experiences and best practices among partners in marketing, selling, implementing and supporting Manageability projects.

How to join?

How do you get access to the information for the community members?

We use two mechanisms to provide and share information:

  • The EMEA Manageability Partner Community blog. This is a public blog and we use it to provide quick and easy communication to the community members. For detailed or restricted material we will point you to a restricted area
  • The EMEA Manageability Partner Community Collaborative Workspace. This is an area with restricted access that only community members can access. It contains materials from community events, sales kits, implementation experiences... reserved to community members. It also allows for partners to share content and collaborate with other community members. You will get access to this restricted area when you register as a member of the EMEA Manageability Partner Community.

Need help?

I hope that you will find useful the resources and the experience exchange provided by the community. If you need help or any further clarification, don't hesitate to contact us!
