Leading Global Organizations Adopt Oracle Database 11g and Oracle Exadata V2

Leading organizations worldwide are adopting Oracle Database 11g and Oracle Exadata V2 thanks to an unrivaled ability to lower IT costs, scale to meet data growth, and deliver extreme performance in data warehouses and OLTP applications.

With enhanced features for grid computing, administration, and storage management, Oracle Database 11g continues to attract a wide range of new customers, including Agenor Technology Limited, Athens International Airport, Grupo Elektra, the i-engineers, and the Ministry of Justice (U.K.), among many others.

Oracle Database 11g Release 2: Powering Production Environments
With the launch of Oracle Database 11g Release 2, Oracle has extended its market leadership, with nearly half of the entire relational database market.

New customers cite a variety of reasons for selecting Oracle Database 11g, including enhanced application performance, lower overall IT costs, increased reliability, and extreme scalability.

“Our customers demand a high-performance platform with 100 percent uptime,” says Peter Summermatter, CEO, i-engineers. “For years now, we’ve been building our solutions on Oracle Database, so it was natural that we selected Oracle Database 11g with the DICOM functionality for our health engine solution.”

Oracle Exadata V2: Extreme Performance
Because of its ability to deliver extreme performance in data warehouse and OLTP environments, Oracle Exadata V2—which was launched in September—is already winning a wide and impressive array of customers, including: Amtrak, Allegro Group, Automobile Association of the U.K., Banca Transilvania, CTC, Garanti Bank, Generale de Sante, Giant Eagle, HISCOM (Hokuriku Coca Cola), Singapore’s Integrated Health Information Systems Pte Ltd/National Healthcare Group, KnowledgeBase Marketing, Loyalty Partner Solutions, M-Tel, MTN Group, Nagase, NS Solutions, NTT Data, OK Systems, Philippines Savings Bank, Research in Motion, SoftBank Mobile, Screwfix, Thomson Reuters, True Corporation Plc, TUI, and Yamazaki Baking.

Developed with Sun Microsystems, Oracle Exadata V2 has attracted this wide range of companies thanks to extreme performance features that include

    • 10x average table compression for data warehouse data
    • The industry’s first intelligent integration of flash storage with a database, delivering more than 1 million I/Os per second
    • 50 gigabytes per second of raw, uncompressed I/O bandwidth

“We expect that the 30 times performance improvement of the Oracle Database Machine will enable faster access to business information and will allow us to launch new products exactly when the market needs them, which will be a direct benefit to our customers,” says Marius Ursuti, director of IT, Banca Transilvania.

Adds Willie Hardie, Oracle’s vice president of database product marketing, "This widespread adoption is further proof that Oracle Exadata has revolutionized the data warehouse industry. V2, with its intelligent Exadata Smart Flash Cache, will do the same for our customers’ OLTP applications."
