The Cisco workforce accesses approximately 1300 Oracle databases for business processes ranging from order processing to customer care. Their challenges are to increase business agility by accelerating provisioning of new Oracle and Oracle RAC databases, increase resiliency and lower infrastructure costs for Oracle databases. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. They have implemented virtualized production and non-production Oracle databases on Cisco unified computing system with VMware and automated backup processes. The results of implementing Cisco were accelerated provisioning from 12 weeks to 3 days, and as little as 3 hours, lowered TCO by approximately 45-50 percent and improved recovery time from several hours to a few minutes.
