Data Intensity has built a successful business hosting and managing Oracle Applications and Oracle Database(s) for internal purposes and on behalf of their end-customers. They have over 300 customers running Oracle solutions like Oracle E-Business Suite in their own data center. However, they realized they could gain cost savings by migrating non-production and disaster recovery environments to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, while still delivering the highly reliable and performant services that their customers demand for their most critical applications.
"We moved to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure because our very business model depends on having the most cost-effective yet best performing infrastructure available to run our customer's Oracle workloads." said James Anthony, Chief Technology Officer at Data Intensity.
Data Intensity now runs customers' E-Business Suite workloads on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute and Block Volumes, and they leverage Oracle’s highly scalable File Storage Service for shared file systems during deployments to help optimize capacity consumption. In addition, they deploy Oracle Databases and can offer end-customers the flexibility to leverage existing licenses with Oracle’s Bring Your Own License (BYOL) program or purchase Oracle Database Cloud Service with license included; all while providing access to capabilities like Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC), which are only available with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Since migrating to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Data Intensity has been able to pass the cost and reliability benefits on to their end customers. One such customer, an educational services company, has seen their monthly infrastructure usage costs go down by 30%. Additionally, Oracle’s cloud infrastructure has been more reliable. This has translated to increased service availability for the end-customer's student and partner facing online portal as well as an 80% reduction in infrastructure-related support hours.
