Turkcell İletişim Hizmetleri A.Ş. (Turkcell) is a leading mobile communications provider in Turkey, with more than 34 million subscribers. Established in 1994, Turkcell created the first global system for a mobile communications network in Turkey, and it was the first Turkish company to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
“Oracle did not compete with other vendors here. We knew beforehand that only Oracle technology could deliver the desired benefits, such as cutting storage space significantly with Hybrid Columnar Compression or running preproduction environments with live data. We also opted for Sun ZFS Storage because it offers much better integration with Oracle Exadata than a third-party storage solution,” said Orhan Karaman, database administrator, Turkcell İletişim Hizmetleri A.Ş.
“The implementation took about two months. The local Oracle team helped us to prepare three different storage pools that cover the main database and two backup systems. The result was a seamless deployment in time and on budget,” Karaman added.
