ADNOC implements Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-2
Oracle Exadata Database Machine boosts performance and scalability across all ADNOC database applications
ADNOC Distribution has deployed an Oracle Exadata Database Machine X 2-2 to optimise performance and quality of service across all its functions.
The integrated Oracle system provides high levels of performance and scalability for all of ADNOC's subsidiary's database applications including Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), and OLAP, Data Warehousing (DW) and consolidation of mixed workloads.
Among the improvements noted by ADNOC are a fifteen times performance increase in the sales system; twenty times improvement in daily processing for smart card transactions and a fifteen times improvement in performance of the retail system. The solution has also improved availability of systems using Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC); lower storage and licensing costs and a faster time to market by eliminating systems integration trial and error.
ADNOC Distribution operates an extensive network of service stations and convenience stores, and runs aviation refuelling services, bunkering facilities for refuelling ships, and a lubricant blending and packaging plant.
