Executive Summary

Ministry of Defence wanted to reduce the cost of maintaining a distributed fleet of 450 servers, terminals, and software in over 300 locations worldwide and provide chain of command with timely visibility of all assets. The challenge was to build a simplified, agile environment with the scalability to support the dynamic needs of the army at the lowest cost. Ministry of Defence decommissioned a dedicated "One-unit-one-server" system in favor of a shared grid architecture built on Oracle Database and Oracle Real Application Clusters, managed centrally as well as replaced 450 individual databases with a two-cluster system that includes three databases and four application servers per cluster, giving each unit its own discrete, secure, virtual partitioned database.
