“It’s no secret our customers want to manage their costs while still receiving the most innovative technologies and products,” said Steve Rogers, Vice President, Capgemini North American Chief Architect. “With the new grid features of Oracle Database 11g Release 2, customers can cut their IT costs by consolidating their database applications on low-cost servers and storage grids while achieving the database performance and quality of service they need. Horizontal scaling with easy-to-implement Oracle Real Application Clusters and infrastructure sharing means Oracle Database 11g Release 2 is ready for the next era of shared data centers.”
“Oracle Database 11g Release 2 with Oracle Active Data Guard is designed to provide Oracle customers with the disaster protection they mandate, but now they can actively make use of previously idle server and storage resources for reporting, testing and backups,” said Jim Cook, president of CSC’s Business Solutions and Services Group.
“Oracle Database 11g Release 2 features new capabilities that enable Fujitsu to offer clients even greater business-intelligence capabilities and tighter database-integration performance,” said Richard McCormack, senior vice president of server and solutions business for Fujitsu America. “Our alliance with Oracle is instrumental to the Fujitsu strategy for extending its cloud computing vision and Oracle’s grid computing globally.”
“Our customers demand more access to business information; and of course they want it faster than before. Oracle Database 11g Release 2 with its enhanced query caching, parallelization and offloading of query processing to HP Oracle Exadata Storage Servers provides the extreme performance our customers require. HP and Oracle are well positioned to help customers garner more business value out of their Oracle Database investment,” said Mike Crowsen, vice president, Oracle Corporate Alliance, HP.
“Many of our customers run global businesses with 24 by 7 requirements, so taking their IFS applications offline to perform maintenance causes them serious inconvenience and even revenue loss,” said Dan Matthews, Chief Technology Officer, IFS. “We have tested the new edition-based redefinition capability that Oracle Database 11g Release 2 brings during our participation in its beta program—and we are excited at the prospect of deploying it to enable the online upgrade of IFS’s applications. Our customers will then be able to install updates to our applications’ database objects, including tables, while the applications remain open for normal use.”
“We are excited with the capabilities in Oracle Database 11g Release 2, in particular with the new grid features that enable a significant reduction in deployment costs,” said Jay Caviness, Database Infrastructure Architect, McKesson Provider Technologies. “With the Automatic Storage Management Cluster File System, our customers will be able to effectively manage the data growth anticipated from federal guidelines surrounding clinical and hospital systems.”
“Our customers participate in rapidly changing and complex energy and commodities businesses that require them to respond quickly and efficiently. Our ability to deliver solutions that can be easily and cost effectively scaled helps our customers handle the demand for real-time response and compliance to increasingly tighter regulation,” said Rafey Kazi, CIO, SunGard’s Energy and Commodities business. “The capabilities of Oracle Database 11g Release 2 using Oracle Real Application Clusters and Automatic Storage Management will help them realize these benefits by consolidating database systems.”
