Oracle Exadata Proof of Concept
We realise that all customers are different and each Oracle workload will have its own unique set of nuances, regardless of its size. This means it’s almost impossible to know what scale Exadata can improve performance. The key is to try it in your datacentre with your applications, which to date has been extremely difficult and costly to achieve for customers – both logistically and technically. To remedy this, our own Exadata is available for onsite Proof of Concepts with zero associated costs.
Our Proof of Concept Process:
Firstly, we meet with you to discuss your Oracle infrastructure, performance issues, business challenges and future business requirements. At the same time, we install our performance monitoring software to gather performance information about specific Oracle workloads. Eg, Backup run times, query wait times.
Delivery & Instillation
Next, an Exadata will be delivered to your site, fully insured, along with our Exadata consultant to begin installation and configuration.
Using the same tool that gathered performance information about your current Database hardware, DSP-Explorer will repeat the benchmark on Exadata and capture like-for-like performance information.
DSP will document the findings using facts and figures gathered throughout the PoC and share with you to form the basis of an internal business case for procurement.
“Working with DSP has helped greatly in our ability to move forwards with improvements to our data environments. DSP provided sound advice and guidance in regards to our plans and as a result, we achieved our objectives and thus, are in a stronger place for the future."
