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.

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.”
