Monsanto develops better seeds for better crops with Oracle Exadata and the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance

High-capacity and high-performance engineered information systems enable organizations to handle more data and process it faster than ever before.  Below are a few of the gains realized by Monsanto by using Oracle Exadata.
  • Monsanto consolidated four major R&D databases and 75% of its data to the Oracle Exadata platform. During the next phase of the project, wrapping up in early 2012, Monsanto will migrate 18 smaller databases that represent the remaining 25% of the data.
  • Monsanto’s researchers used to wait as long as 36 hours for the results from field experiments. Now with Oracle Exadata they’ve cut the turnaround time in half.
  • Monsanto’s Oracle Exadata platform revealed significant performance gains for 90 to 95% of SQL queries.
Read the full story in Oracle Magazine's A Better Breed to see how agricultural giant Monsanto relies on Oracle Exadata Database Machines and the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance to meet its growing speed, capacity, throughput, and availability needs.
