Redwood Shores, Calif. – July 30, 2012
Oracle today announced international fashion icon, Versace, is using Oracle VM Server for x86 to address the demands of its rapidly expanding data center.
To ensure their IT infrastructure could meet the growing demands of the business, Versace began an upgrade process that would replace aging IT components with lower cost, higher performance solutions.
By choosing Oracle VM, Versace was able to reduce virtualization-related costs by 50 percent, while doubling the number of cores in production.
With its new Oracle VM-based architecture, which also leverages Oracle Linux, Versace has been able to reduce its physical number of servers by 40 percent, rack space by 25 percent and power consumption by 45 percent.
"Our ultimate goal was to improve application deployment time, increase performance and save on IT costs,” said Gian Giacomo Ferraris, CEO of Versace. “The support that we have received from Oracle has helped us dramatically reduce licensing and management costs, while ensuring our architecture can scale to meet the changing dynamics of our growing business.”
