U.S. Army Achieves Huge Performance Boost and Cost Savings with Oracle SuperCluster

The U.S. Army AL&T Magazine has published an excellent article called "PBUSE PLUS, CECOM Web-based logistics server solution creates property book system efficiency". This article discusses the U.S. Army's deployment of Oracle SuperCluster and includes a number of key success metrics that we think are excellent examples of the results that Oracle SuperCluster customers regularly experience.
- The decision to acquire the Oracle SuperCluster to replace the PBUSE server architecture was a response to severe server problems in accommodating an increasing PBUSE mission workload.
- To date, the system supports 40,478 active Army, Reserve and National Guard users, averaging 34,750 transactions daily for on-hand assets valued at $212 billion.
- User requests travel within the cloud operating system as much as 32 times faster than with the legacy PBUSE system it replaced.
- The PBUSE SPARC SuperCluster takes up one third of the space of the previous six racks, uses a fraction of the power and vastly improves speed and efficiency.
