Why Bowmicro Chose Oracle

To meet its customer SLA requirements and manage operational costs, Bowmicro built an IT foundation using Oracle x86 Servers, Oracle Linux, and Oracle Virtualization. These combined infrastructure solutions ensure a highly secure and available architecture.

These x86 servers include Oracle operating systems and virtualization software at no extra charge, helping service providers such as Bowmicro eliminate hidden customer costs and reduce total cost of ownership.

Results

Oracle Linux and Oracle Virtualization have improved Bowmicro’s ability to meet client SLAs with increased system availability and maximum system performance across the stack. It has also enabled Bowmicro to lower its operational costs.

The IT operations team leverages Oracle Linux Manager (formerly Spacewalk) to manage the Oracle Linux software lifecycle. Oracle VM templates with prebuilt and pre-installed Oracle Database and applications on Oracle Linux have greatly reduced the time needed to set up an environment. What used to take 2 to 3 days now requires just a few hours.
