Elton Oil Gains Secure Backup
and Recovery with Oracle IaaS

Elton Oil is a retailer of petroleum products and related services based in Senegal, competing in the market for gasoline and oils with established multinationals such as Total, Shell and OiLibya.


Previously, Elton Oil was backing up its 100GB SQL database to a local hard drive. That process took a lot of manual effort, took a long time, and ultimately offered the company very little protection in the event of a data disaster.


By using Oracle Storage Cloud Service with Oracle Storage Cloud Software Appliance as a cloud storage gateway, Elton Oil gained the ability to backup 100GB of petroleum data in less than 20 minutes.

The company also optimised backup performance for 17 years of petroleum trading data from its JD Edwards ERP platform using only a 1mb line.

Elton Oil Gained the ability to back up 100 GB of petroleum data and compress it to 7 GB in less than 20 minutes.

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.
