Friday Spotlight: KT and Oracle VM
By Chris Kawalek on Dec 20, 2013
In the first video, Jung-Sik Suh, SVP of Cloud Convergence at KT, discusses the IT challenges they recently faced. To support their next generation customers, they needed to diversify their product offerings and expand their capacity, and they had to do this while simultaneously merging with another company! They decided to design a private cloud using Oracle VM and Oracle Linux that resulted in a 70% reduction of infrastructure cost and 50% reduction in operation cost.
In the second video, Mr. Suh discusses how implementing an Oracle software stack that is designed to work together, including Oracle VM, Oracle Linux, Oracle Enterprise Manager, and more, allows them to save costs and pass the savings on to their customers, and in the future, will provide a profit center for them, as well.
