Five ways you will benefit from database consolidation

IT typically responds to increasing or changing demands for services by adding more servers to their environment, creating a heterogeneous and sprawling data center landscape. Even with converged infrastructures, a sprawl of Virtual systems can be problematic. These complex IT infrastructures are difficult to manage and hinder application performance and business agility. Consolidating multiple workloads onto a smaller number of more powerful systems can simplify data center infrastructure, resulting in increased business agility and operational efficiency. Operational expenses are also reduced through lower acquisition costs and decreased floor space, power and cooling requirements.

  1. Reduce Configuration Items spawl - reducing hardware, software and configuration details is a path to simplification 

  2. Reduce Costs - reducing HW and SW maintenance cost, support costs

  3. Reducing data center floor space

  4. Reducing administration and operations overhead. Reducing management of many systems. Reducing the numbers of systems to patch. Reducing the number of systems to monitor and audit.

  5. Reducing time to value, having a standardized deployments that scale provides better agility and to faster times to market.

The combination of Oracle Database with the latest engineered systems technology is the best solution to meet such requirements.

Oracle Exadata has the architecture for the next-generation database. It delivers isolation, agility and economies of scale. With Oracle database and multi-tenant feature you can hold many pluggable databases. An existing database can simply be adopted with no application changes required. Oracle Virtualization fully supports and provides levels of isolation including options like Oracle Real Application Clusters, Oracle Active Data Guard and Database Vault.

You can do the math.
