To meet rapidly increasing demand for its services, including a sudden spike to 300 million daily meeting participants, Zoom needed additional cloud capacity immediately. Zoom selected Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for its advantages in performance, scalability, reliability, and cloud security. Within hours of deployment, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure supported hundreds of thousands of concurrent Zoom meeting participants. Oracle’s second-generation cloud infrastructure will help Zoom scale to continue to deliver flawless service to its customer base, adapt to changing demands, and lead the video communications industry.
“We recently experienced the most significant growth our business has ever seen, requiring massive increases in our service capacity. We explored multiple platforms, and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure was instrumental in helping us quickly scale our capacity and meet the needs of our new users.”
Eric S. Yuan, CEO, Zoom
Tetration, a workload security platform, was originally using an on-premise IT offering. They were looking for a software-as-a-service delivery model for their security-conscious customers, spanning multiple industries. The company began exploring different cloud providers. They chose Oracle and were able to reduce costs, passing those savings on to their customers.
“When we started off on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, we saw a dramatic improvement over other cloud providers. The performance improvement was about 60 times, as compared to the leading cloud provider.”
Navindra Yadav, Founder, Cisco Tetration
Western Digital, SanDisk, and HGST, three Fortune 500 companies, recently merged. The companies had obvious alignments; however, integrating three large companies was an enormous challenge. At the start of the merger, there were more than 2,000 applications running across the three companies. There were also three separate ERP systems: two from SAP and Oracle E-Business Suite. Rather than try to move data onto one system from the other two, Western Digital decided to take the opportunity to re-imagine its business in the cloud.
“Once we chose Oracle ERP Cloud, then the Oracle suite made sense as well—ERP, EPM, analytics, and other Oracle systems, as they all integrate well together. We wanted a streamlined process, something end-to-end from the point you capture the data to the point you want to report out the data.”
Bill Roy, Senior Director, Western Digital
