Large-scale Exadata implementation
Cintra specializes in designing, delivering and managing Oracle public, private and hybrid cloud architectures. The Engineered Systems award recognizes a large-scale and time-critical private cloud delivery for a well-known financial services business.
The first stage required the implementation of 29 separate Engineered Systems, including Exadata Database Machine, ZFS Storage Appliance and Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (ZDLRA). The second stage is a phased upgrade and migration of more than 200 important databases.
Delivering ahead of schedule
By continually reviewing lessons learned and feeding these into our process blueprint, we dramatically accelerated the Engineered Systems implementation process, meaning we completed two weeks ahead of schedule.
Abdul Sheikh, President and CTO of Cintra, commented: “This high-profile private cloud delivery is a critical part of the customer’s plan to roll out new products and services. Throughout, we provided a blend of Oracle skills, both on-site and remote, at very short notice. We also ensured no interruption to the customer’s business.
“This transformation is delivering faster reporting, better application response times and customer experiences, quicker backups and recovery, and higher encryption and decryption speeds.”
“Cintra has demonstrated an outstanding level of innovation in delivering proven, Oracle-based Engineered Systems private cloud solutions that solve our joint customers’ most critical business challenges,” said Brian Hamel, Senior Vice President, Cloud Business Group, North America Converged Infrastructure, Oracle.
“We congratulate Cintra in achieving the 2019 Oracle Excellence Award for North America Partner of the Year in Engineered Systems. This achievement is a testament to their dedication to excellence and to providing customers services that drive real business value and results.”
