A subsidiary of the SeLoger real estate company, Poliris Group is a French software company offering Website creation and referencing services to real estate agencies. Used by 5,000 agencies and 25,000 users, its Web-based application, Périclès.net, is the largest real estate transaction and knowledge platform in France. The application enables realtors to efficiently manage customers, prospects, and real estate properties. It also provides access to value-added services—such as making ads visible on the 15 most important, national real estate portals, automatically publishing ads in various media and conducting real estate diagnoses, like the energy performance study required by French property-sale regulations.
Poliris Group chose Oracle to ensure the high availability required by realtors to support real estate promotions and sales.
“We chose Oracle Database Appliance because the platform offers us the ability to increase processing power on demand to support the future development of commercial services that best meet realtor requirements. The solution enables us to add processors without ever affecting our production,” said Luc Rolland, information technology director, Poliris Group.
The Oracle team completed the Oracle Database Appliance implementation in nine days, including configuration and hardware installation. Oracle managed the migration of the new database to the Oracle Database Appliance and the data replication processes with Oracle Active Data Guard to support disaster recovery.
Oracle Gold Partner, EVEA Group, recommended the Oracle Database Appliance solution to Poliris to solve issues related to increases in real estate transaction application load and to eliminate disk bottlenecks on the storage area network bay. EVEA Group also supported the project in total synergy with Oracle.
“Thanks to Oracle Database Appliance and to our partner EVEA Group, we implemented our new, critical, real estate transaction application hosting platform in less than nine days. It would have taken more than three months with another market solution,” said Luc Rolland, information technology director, Poliris Group.
