13 Aug 2014 U.S. Army Achieves Huge Performance Boost and Cost Savings with Oracle SuperCluster [37800]
By Michael Palmeter

Michael Palmeter writes, "The U.S. Army AL&T Magazine has published an excellent article called "PBUSE PLUS, CECOM Web-based logistics server solution creates property book system efficiency". This article discusses the U.S. Army's deployment of Oracle SuperCluster and includes a number of key success metrics that we think are excellent examples of the results that Oracle SuperCluster customers regularly experience.

  • The decision to acquire the Oracle SuperCluster to replace the PBUSE server architecture was a response to severe server problems in accommodating an increasing PBUSE mission workload.
  • To date, the system supports 40,478 active Army, Reserve and National Guard users, averaging 34,750 transactions daily for on-hand assets valued at $212 billion. -User requests travel within the cloud operating system as much as 32 times faster than with the legacy PBUSE system it replaced.
  • The PBUSE SPARC SuperCluster takes up one third of the space of the previous six racks, uses a fraction of the power and vastly improves speed and efficiency.

30 Jun 2014 Optimizing the Data Center with Oracle Cross Portfolio Offerings [37196]
By Corneliu Moldoveanu,Consulting Director, Enterprise and Industry Solution Architecture

Corneliu writes, "With the advent of modern approaches such as virtualization, management layer integration and cloud computing, the data center landscape is evolving at an accelerated pace. While traditional limitations are being addressed through novel approaches, new issues are inherently being introduced that compound the issue, even as business and IT customer expectations have become more sophisticated than ever before. Oracle's response to these challenges is the Oracle Application Engineered Systems (AES) portfolio, which includes the purpose-built engineered systems (e.g.Exa* product family) and general purpose (e.g.SPARC SuperCluster).

When we talk about how the Oracle hardware and software stacks are engineered to work together, we are referring to our unique ability to offer customers a completely integrated hardware and software stack..."

How to use SPARC SuperCluster and operations support system (OSS) applications to build an OSS platform

Communication service providers (CSPs) face increasing pressure to contain costs while meeting the growing demand for services. Critical to their success is an operations support system (OSS) platform that can handle large order volumes in a predictable way. Using Oracle SPARC SuperCluster and OSS applications that are part of the Oracle Communications product line, CSPs can deploy their service fulfillment solution on a highly available, integrated, and secure platform.
