AAR has more than a half-century of experience serving the needs of its commercial airline and government defense customers with a wide range of aviation/aerospace products and value-added services. To deliver that information and ensure quality and safety throughout the aviation supply chain, AAR relies on more than 35 production Oracle databases running across a range of HP servers. However, as the company grew dramatically in recent years, data center space and energy resources were becoming strained. In addition, several critical applications were experiencing performance problems. To address these issues, AAR explored new technologies that would facilitate consolidation while boosting application performance. And after carefully evaluating offerings from HP, IBM, and Sun, AAR selected HP Integrity server blades running HP-UX 11i v3.
