Running Oracle Database 12c with Oracle Exadata and Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance enabled us to process 120,000 properties instead of 50,000 properties per hour and list new properties 24x faster. The improved efficiency also helped to enhance user experience and enable 24/7 operations.
Daito Trust Construction Co., Ltd. is Japan’s second largest construction and real estate management company. It lists more than 3 million residential leasing properties—including self-managed and other partner agencies’ properties—via its nation-wide “E-heya-net” portal. With over 23 million site visits each month, Daito Trust Construction generates more than 1 million new leasing deals in 2016.
Due to a large volume of new listings, the legacy database server was struggling to cope with the business demands and support application changes, such as adding a merging process to remove duplicate listings from multiple agencies. To sustains its leading position, Daito Trust Construction needed to improve batch processing cycles and enable non-stop listing operations.
We were already satisfied with the performance of Oracle Database over the last few years. To further enhance I/O performance, we unified all the components with Oracle Exadata and Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance to achieve superior compatibility and simplify maintenance tasks.
Daito Trust Construction upgraded to Oracle Database 12c and migrated to Oracle Exadata X5-2 and Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance for full compatibility and ease of maintenance. It spent approximately three months for system development and two months for testing. Daito Trust Construction completed the database upgrade project in just a few months and went live with the new platform before the peak season started in January.
Founded in 1974, Daito Trust Construction Co., Ltd. is Japan’s leading service provider for combined construction and real estate management. Its lease management trust system provides a one stop shop service—from design and construction to marketing and lease management—for owners of a wide range of residential and commercial real estate properties.
Oracle Platinum Partner, ITOCHU Techno-Solutions Corporation (CTC) has been providing database support to Daito Trust Construction for years. It worked with the partner again for the database upgrade project due to its reliability and professionalism.
“With CTC’s deep understanding of our overall IT environment, we received the best execution plan and consolidated our hardware and software components to a high performing and scalable Oracle platform within the timeline and budget,” said Kanako Tanoue, engineer, System Development Group, IT System Department, Daito Trust Construction Co., Ltd.
