Avero, LLC offers enterprise performance management solutions that enable hospitality industry organizations to sort through mountains of data to drive revenue, improve profitability, and deliver a superior guest experience.
The company, which offers analytical solutions that help restaurants and other hospitality industry organizations to improve profitability, quality, and service, was doubling its customer base, annually. High performance and availability of Avero’s solutions are critical to food and beverage managers, who need to access performance data quickly, so they can focus on operations and customer service. As Avero continued to grow rapidly, it began to rethink its storage requirements to ensure it had the application performance, scalability, and cost-effectiveness that it required, moving forward.
The company, which runs Oracle Database, Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle’s Sun SPARC servers, Oracle Solaris, and more―selected Oracle’s Pillar Axiom 600 for its new storage environment. It achieved a 40% increase in extract-transform-load (ETL) throughput and application performance on the first day of going live on Pillar Axiom 600. Today, food and beverage managers can get granular restaurant performance data, including sales, food costs, labor costs, and more in the same time that it previously took to deliver the top-line rollups.
In addition to optimizing its database efficiency and performance, Avero’s storage upgrade expanded storage scalability, reduced storage costs, and simplified both IT management and maintenance by eliminating separate storage systems for production, preproduction, and staging environments.
“When we launched the business 12 years ago, we decided to go with best-of- breed hardware and software across the board. We invested in Oracle’s Sun servers, Oracle Solaris, Oracle’s WebLogic middleware, and of course, Oracle Database. We have seen many advantages to working with a single vendor across our technology stack and consolidating administration through Oracle Enterprise Manager. My Oracle Support also has provided us with world-class support; we find the answers that we need in one spot. The choice, therefore, was easy when it came time to rethink our storage environment. Oracle’s Pillar Axiom 600 offered a superior solution, and it would further streamline management,” said Robert Barracca, director of infrastructure technologies, Avero. “We are really looking forward to integrating Axiom management into Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, which will give us a single pane where we can manage our database, middleware, applications, and storage.”
