Oracle Powers Oregon State University’s Leading Edge Climate Research
Oracle’s Integrated Server and Storage Systems Meet Data Intensive Demands of University Research Center
Redwood Shores, Calif. – March 29, 2011
To support its leading edge scientific research on the ocean and atmosphere’s influence on the Earth’s climate, Oregon State University's College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences (COAS) has expanded its infrastructure with Oracle hardware and software.
With Oracle, COAS has an easy to manage, integrated system that delivers the flexibility and scalability necessary to address the exponential data increases associated with its leading-edge research, as well as quickly adjust to ever-changing data availability requirements.
As a result of extending its infrastructure with Oracle, COAS has improved data movement and performance by approximately 3 to 4 times, reduced system administration and management time, and unified research silos to gain a holistic view of integrated data sets.
Additionally, COAS can now manage its unusually large input/output (I/O) loads, enabling the computation, storage, analysis and visualization of massive data flows.
“Advances in technology are changing the pace of scientific research, allowing us to collect and process substantially more data in real time,” said Chuck Sears, manager of Research Computing for the COAS.” Oracle's powerful integrated solution scales seamlessly to meet our changing research needs, provides a holistic view of the data and has been core to our investigation of some of the most complex environmental challenges in the world.”
