The City of Baton Rouge selected Oracle Database Appliance to create a reliable, high-performance platform with built-in redundancy and capacity-on-demand scalability—which is important for the city’s future growth—while delivering unrivalled user response times and cutting the cost of ownership.
“We chose Oracle Database Appliance because of its easy implementation, exceptional cost-benefit ratio, and ease-of-use, which minimizes maintenance costs,” said Eric Romero, interim director of information services, City of Baton Rouge.
“We completed the Oracle Database Appliance migration in-house in just a few months working with one DBA and one junior DBA. Once we completed the planning process, it took just one weekend to get the solution up and running. And, as soon as we went live, our users immediately noticed a performance increase,” Romero said.
