PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) is Indonesia’s state-owned electric company and is the sole electricity provider to approximately 51 million customers in all regions of the country. PLN is Indonesia's second-largest state company by assets.
PLN chose Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2 Quarter Rack, Sun ZFS Storage 7420 appliance, and Oracle GoldenGate to deliver a highly available, scalable, and reliable integrated database and storage platform to improve customer service and management decision-making.
“Oracle was the only vendor we considered, as we know its database engines are the most stable on the market,” said Murtaqi Syamsuddin “Our technical staff is highly skilled in managing Oracle products, so it was an easy decision for us to select Oracle for this implementation.”
PLN began implementing Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle GoldenGate in July 2012. The new environment went live on September 30, 2012. It deployed Sun ZFS Storage 7420 appliance in October 2012.
PLN staff provided user training to database administration staff to ensure timely adoption of new processes prior to deployment.
