Partners, Start your Engines

Hello speed racer - OPN here to inform you that in case you missed it, our ISV Focused PartnerCast took place last week in Oracle's Redwood Shores studio. Without a roadblock in site, Oracle's key drivers discussed topics like Optimized and Oracle's Cloud offerings; even OPN partner MSC took it to the next level by stopping by to share with us their first hand experience with the Oracle Exastack Optimized program.

By stepping into Oracle's "Motor Speedway", better known as the Exastack lab, MSC was able to fine tune, test and optimize their application on Oracle Exadata, as well as gain outstanding expertise on several technical areas such as optimizing multithreaded applications and database tuning. By optimizing their solution, MSC has "decreased their deployment time and saw a 30 percent performance improvement in database." Sounds like someone's gearing up for an "Oracle Indy 500."

By achieving Oracle Exadata Optimized status, MSC is putting performance in the driver's seat, and their customers at the front of the race by delivering a solution that is tuned for performance, scalability and reliability. So go ahead and let the Oracle Exastack Optimized pit crew take you to the finish line. Learn how to go from 0-60 by watching MSC's segment of the ISV Focused PartnerCast below.
