Why Kingold Chose Oracle

Kingold chose Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer because it was able to accelerate key workloads, reduce costs, and safeguard customer data by ensuring that the information never leaves Kingold’s data center.


Kingold lifted and shifted crucial database workloads from Microsfot Azure to Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer in seven days. The company ended up reducing costs by 44% compared to using Azure.

Kingold also accelerated financial reporting workloads running on IBM systems to Exadata Cloud@Customer by up to 18X. Reports that took 720 seconds before completed in about 40 seconds.

Migrating to Oracle Exadata enabled Kingold’s IT organization to focus on innovative products instead of manual system management. Another advantage was the company’s ability to maintain the security of private customer data by keeping it in Kingold’s own data center while still benefiting from cloud automation and pay-per-use economics.
