News Facts

WebNMS, a division of ZOHO Corporation and Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, supports MySQL and Oracle Database 11g in its WebNMS Framework, a leading network and element management solution.
With more than 25,000 Tier 1 Carrier deployments, WebNMS needed a relational database solution that would allow its industry-leading management system to support the wide-ranging, complex requirements and standards of the communications industry.
By providing the flexibility to integrate either MySQL or Oracle Database 11g in the WebNMS Framework, developers and network operators are able to accommodate the increasingly stringent demands for availability and performance on network management workloads, including the proliferation of nodes, higher bandwidth, and richer communication services.
WebNMS relies on MySQL for its ease-of-use, stability and cost effective licensing model for their customers. Its ubiquity amongst developers and DBAs, cross-platform support and small footprint enable WebNMS customers to quickly build and deploy highly customizable management systems.
Oracle Database 11g and Oracle Real Application Clusters are integrated into the WebNMS Framework when requirements are for fault tolerant, high availability replication, high scalability and performance in a distributed environment.
