We used Oracle Storage Cloud Service to back up 17 years of business data in 20 minutes. We achieved operational excellence by offering 24/7 access to secure and non-corrupt databases, even in the case of natural disasters or force majeure.
Elton Oil is a retailer of petroleum products and related services in Senegal, competing in the market for gasoline, lubricants, and oils with established multinationals such as Total, Shell, Oryx, and OiLibya. Elton Oil operates 20 filling stations and offers e-payment services in its Edens convenience stores, E-Service boutiques, and Oasis gas stations.
With recent new discoveries of crude oil and gas, Senegal’s petroleum industry is set to expand. As Elton Oil’s business grows, so does its database of products, clients, and suppliers generated by Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. In 2016 Elton Oil began looking for a backup and disaster recovery solution to substitute its local hard drive backup.
We operate on the simple principle that, having used Oracle since 2003, we are always open to what Oracle proposes in the knowledge that end-to-end integrity is guaranteed. It is a relationship based on trust.
