Julien Dontcheff on the Oracle Compute Cloud Service (IaaS)

Julien Dontcheff, from Accenture, is a very active member of our community. For a very interesting opinion on Oracle IaaS, see the article he has recently published in his blog: "What’s New for Oracle Compute Cloud Service (IaaS)"

Improving SAP performance with Exadata: Wumart Stores

After in-depth evaluation and comparison of various vendors, Wumart Stores implemented Oracle Exadata to replace its IBM servers and storage appliance. It also migrated four Oracle Databases for SAP applications, including ERP core, and extended its warehouse management and business warehouse to Oracle Exadata. Wumart Stores completed the entire project—from design to implementation—in just three months and went live with the new platform on time and within budget.

"By consolidating 92% of our IBM servers and four databases onto a single Oracle EXADATA Database Machine, we gained an integrated, high-performing private cloud platform to support e-business growth.  We can process online orders 8x faster, and reduced operating costs by over US$100,000 per year. " – Zheng Tao, Head of IT, Wumart Stores, Inc.
