New Exadata public references: China Mobile Fujian Processes Data 4x Faster, Increases Data Compression by 3x to 5x

In 2012, China Mobile Fujian implemented Oracle Exadata Database Machine to replace its legacy infrastructure and develop an enterprise-level data warehouse for its next-generation BASS. Switching to Oracle Exadata significantly improved the performance, scalability, and capacity of the BASS data warehouse.

In the past, China Mobile Fujian could only store 70 TB of data in its data warehouse, which greatly restricted the business analysis it could complete. Now, the company can easily store and process 250 TB of data, including historical data about its mobile customers and the services used; the data mart access layer; and operational, financial, and analysis reports. This enables China Mobile Fujian to make the most efficient use of the massive volumes of data generated by its BASS, as well as network management, telecommunication services, and financial systems.
