MAS Use Cases

Challenges: 

  • DB Performance Issues
  • Inefficiency
  • Single-Vendor Dependancy
  • Complex Maintenance

A Canada-based food retailer with a network of 1,000 corporate and franchise locations was seeking a way to increase their Oracle Database performance and hardware efficiency to create a more cost-prohibitive IT environment.

In addition to performance and inefficiency issues, the company was looking to rid themselves of their single-vendor dependency and complex maintenance, two features of their current infrastructure setup.

To standardize processes and simplify management, the company was considering ways to automate, as well as appliance-like systems, such as x86-based Oracle Engineered Systems.

MAS Solution:

  • Improved Performance
  • Improved Efficiency
  • Vendor Independance
  • Automation

Implemented to introduce task and process automation, increase efficiency, and improve performance, Vendita MAS brought advanced capabilities to the client, including easy migration of the customer’s current Oracle Database, system optimization, and rapid deployment.

Once implemented, Vendita’s MAS software lowered the company’s total cost of ownership by 25% through the reduction of Oracle software requirements, maximization of human resource capabilites, and improved utilization of available processor resources — resulting in immediate productivity increases.

Deploying Vendita MAS also allowed the retail company to successfully rid themselves of their single-vendor reliance.

Challenges:

  • Licensing Cost
  • Performance
  • Utilization
  • Deployment

A leading healthcare alliance headquartered in Phoenix, AZ — responsible for managing a civilian healthcare benefits program covering a 16-state region for the U.S. Government — was looking to reduce Oracle licensing costs, maximize system utilization, and rapidly deploy and automate their Oracle Database.

To comply with this healthcare company's unique criteria, it was essential that proposed solutions be able to support active Disaster Recovery (DR) and High Availability (HA) capabilities, while also maintaining HIPPA compliance. To fulfill these requirements, the healthcare entity was examining infrastructure solutions, including x86 and Oracle Database Appliance (ODA).

MAS Solution: 

  • Reduced Cost
  • Improved Performance
  • Automated
  • Rapidly Deployed

Introduced to compete against the proposed x86 and ODA offerings, Vendita MAS on IBM Power Systems™ provided a compelling solution for the healthcare entity's Oracle workloads.

Once implemented, Vendita MAS's software bridged the technology gap and reduced the required knowledge to deploy, provision, and maintain the Oracle Database on AIX® and IBM POWER® — resulting in lower cost, faster deployment, and a more efficient IT environment for the customer.

Architected for real-time DR and HA utilizing Oracle Active Data Guard and Oracle RAC, Vendita MAS and the IBM Power Systems™ solution saved the project over $1,000,000 in Oracle software and resource costs.
