“Ingersoll Rand has gone through many acquisitions and mergers, and as a result has a variety of hardware, software, applications, and processes. We didn’t need to evaluate all the different platform options available because we knew the performance benefits we obtained from Oracle systems, as well as the problems we faced with other vendors’ solutions. It was a natural progression that we evaluated and ultimately implemented Oracle Exadata and Oracle Exalogic. With 41x faster processing speeds, the benefits spoke for themselves,” said Barry Bonar, enterprise architect, Ingersoll Rand.
Ingersoll Rand worked with Oracle to complete a proof of value on the Oracle Exadata platform. The company shipped its entire data set to Oracle to run the designated performance tests on Oracle Exadata, enabling Ingersoll Rand to safely test its distinct workload to validate performance gains before investing in the engineered systems.
“Oracle came onsite to install our Oracle engineered systems. Once complete, we had Oracle Exadata and Exalogic, with the InfiniBand connection between them, all our computer nodes, and every other piece up and running as we wanted. Working with one vendor from the hardware rack through to the software stack provided a tremendous benefit,” Bonar said.
