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.
Oracle continues to innovate for
Education & Research excellence with Oracle solutions for the
modern campus.University of Madrid (UAM) enabled a 10x increase in student enrollment, and
enabled UAM to manage students’ class selections and scheduling 91% faster with
SuperCluster half-rack, Oracle
WebLogic Server, and Oracle Database .
AM implemented a completely
integrated, performance optimized Oracle solution enabling 98% of students to
complete enrollment with no limits to concurrent sessions, and to meet the future
database exports and imports 12x, improving IT administration
efficiencies.SuperCluster employs a
massively parallel architecture and Exadata Smart Flash Cache to dramatically
accelerate Oracle Database processing and speed I/O operations.
“Oracle provides the best database
and application server, and Oracle SuperCluster enables us to get the most
performance out of it, specifically by enabling hundreds of students to enroll
for classes faster and simultaneously.”– María José García Rodriguez, director
of information technology, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
This solution uses the SPARC SuperCluster T4-4, Oracle’s first multi-purpose engineered system. Download the free business and technical white papers which provide significant relevant information and resources.
What is an Optimized Solution?
Oracle Optimized Solutions are fully documented architectures that have been thoroughly tested, tuned and optimized for performance and availability across the entire stack on a target platform. The technical white paper details the deployed application architecture along with various observations from installing the application on target platform to its behavior and performance in highly available and scalable configurations.
Oracle E-Business Suite R12 and Oracle Database 11g
Multiple Oracle E-Business Suite application modules were tested in this Oracle Optimized Solution -- Financials (online - Oracle Forms & Web requests), Order Management (online - Oracle Forms & Web requests) and HRMS (online - Web requests & payroll batch).
Oracle Solaris Cluster and Oracle Real Application Cluster deliver the the high availability on this solution.
To understand the behavior of the architecture under peak load conditions, determine optimum utilization, verify the scalability of the solution and exercise high availability features, Oracle engineers tested the Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Database all running on a SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 engineered system. The test results are documented in the Oracle Optimized Solution white papers to provide general guidance for real world deployments.
