“Oracle competed against a classical storage area network solution in a virtualized environment. We chose Oracle Exadata because we get much higher storage performance for a lower total cost of ownership. Also, with fixed capital costs over a three-year period, we are sure to avoid cost increases when our storage requirements grow,” said Holger Haun, managing director, IDS GmbH – Analysis and Reporting Services.
IDS GmbH – Analysis and Reporting Services ensured a fast and seamless implementation of Oracle Exadata Database Machine with the help of Oracle Advanced Customer Support Services, whose experts have a track record of thousands of deployments worldwide.
“We have enjoyed a close relationship with Oracle partner Information Systems Engineering (ISE) for many years and have very positive experiences from previous migrations. With their profound knowledge of Oracle technology, ISE professionals provided consulting and technical support during the deployment, including fine-tuning Oracle Exadata,” Haun said.
