The Benefits of an Engineered System for the University of Minnesota

Tuesday, March 27 | 11:45AM–12:30PM | Zurich G
Session Type: Professional Development
The University of Minnesota central IT organization has been actively retiring dated technology in favor of engineered systems, virtualization, and next-generation technology that requires less hands-on maintenance and support by IT staff. Oracle's Exadata database machine is being used to improve the consistency of database management and service delivery, reduce TCO, provide maximum availability for Oracle databases, and increase database performance with an "out-of-the-box" vanilla system. Join this interactive presentation to understand the business drivers that led to the decision to purchase the Oracle Exadata database machine.
