New York area university reduces TCO, boosts performance, and protects data availability in their Oracle environment.
The leading university wanted an alternative that would be more cost-effective, deliver faster performance, and provide high availability and data protection for their mission-critical Oracle database. The system maintained all the information for student registration. This institution comprises multiple divisions that serve more than 10,000 students. It ran an HP/UX, SAN-based environment with replication of its full SAN architecture between two fabrics in a cluster. Each fabric had its own SAN cost.
Integration of ioMemory-based IO accelerators with both the servers and SIOS Protection Suite for Linux offered better performance and data availability than traditional legacy solutions. This made the SIOS product a perfect fit.
With servers configured with SanDisk Fusion ioMemory-based IO accelerators, the leading university could replace its bulky and expensive SAN-based setup with a streamlined server set running Linux. SIOS Protection Suite provided data replication. While the SIOS application recovery kit protected the dedicated Oracle machines.
