The challenge

The new architecture was required within a short time period to meet the upcoming holiday season, and had to provide high levels of redundancy, uptime and performance. The cutover to the new architecture also had to be achieved with minimal downtime to the business.

Key differentiators

  • Cintra’s database architecture roadmap provided a clear plan with a complete view of benefits and costs
  • Cintra’s blueprinted delivery ensured a low risk deployment within aggressive timescales
  • Cintra’s balance of benefits, cost and simplicity provided Uncommon Goods with a platform that could support the business while managing complexity and cost

“As our trusted Oracle Partner, Cintra delivered a high performance, highly available, database architecture with minimal Oracle licensing costs in time to meet the demands of the busy 2012 holiday season.  I have confidence that the engineered systems deployed by Cintra will allow our business to scale to meet future growth projections.”
