IDC Report: Oracle Engineered Systems Provides US Retailer $28M in Total Cost of Ownership Savings

Major U.S. Department Store Retailer Leverages Oracle Engineered Systems for Greater Business Agility with Oracle SuperCluster

IDC has conducted a report to calculate the return on investment for a major US retail customer by migrating to Oracle Engineered Systems, particularly Oracle SuperCluster.  Consolidation has enabled the retailer to put multiple databases in Oracle Exadata and Oacle SuperCluster. In the past, they needed many more servers to host these databases in a more distributed environment. Consolidation has helped the retailer reduce the number of software licenses it requires to support its data center operations by moving more workloads from a more distributed environment to these Oracle engineered systems, saving an average over three years of $512,000 a year.
