    Why  Exadata  

    Trying  to  solve  a  capacity  problem,  this  innovative  and  tech-­‐savvy  company  was  one  of   the  earliest  adopters  of  Exadata.  They  had  run  out  of  runway,  out  of  space,  out  of  CPU,   out  of  everything.  Their  business  needed  a  solution  able  to  keep  up  with  the  demands  of   their  growing  customer  requests.

    This  health  and  wellness  company  uses  a  direct-­‐sales  model  to  promote  an  expansive   line  of  skin  care,  weight  control  and  vitamin  supplements.  Their  continually  growing   global  network  of  independent  distributors,  place  a  high  demand  on  the  ecommerce   site.  System  reliability  and  high  performance  are  a  must.  

    Why  Exadata  

    The  company’s  rapid  and  unpredictable  growth  presented  a  potential  threat  to  the  long-­‐ range  success  and  stability  of  the  company’s  ecommerce  website.  Frequently,  the   database  hit  performance  limits  during  peak  order  times.  IT  leaders  were  also   concerned  about  the  lack  of  redundancy  to  avoid  system  outages.  With  future  growth   expectations  running  high,  the  company  decided  to  build  a  future-­‐proof  platform  by   implementing  a  robust,  highly  available  Exadata  infrastructure.

    Market  Research    

    This  company  specializes  in  providing  its  clients  with  millions  of  online  research   panelists,  enabling  clients  to  interact  with  consumers  and  executives.  The  company  also   supports  research  study  applications  for  ad  effectiveness,  brand  comparison  and   customer  satisfaction.  

    Why  Exadata  

    The  company  had  strained  its  legacy  system  to  the  max.    Report  times  were   unacceptable,  ranging  from  hours  to  days.  Exadata  was  the  best  option  to  handle  its   massive  data  requirements:  more  than  10  databases  and  23TB  of  data.  Downtime  had   to  be  limited  to  hours  per  year.    Every  hour  of  downtime  equated  to  a  loss  of  nearly     $100,000.
