Agilent, Ross, 7-Eleven, and SriLankan Airlines Among Customers Choosing Oracle Exalogic to Move to the Cloud and Grow Their Businesses

Companies Cite Benefits From Faster Application Deployment and Response Times to Accelerated Business Processes and Improved IT Staff Productivity

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2015) -  Spotlighting the strong growth and business value of Oracle engineered systems, Oracle (NYSE: ORCL) today announced customers across 52 industries in 22 countries are using Oracle Exalogic  to reduce cost and complexity and move to the cloud. Recent customers include Agilent, Autoridade Tributária e Aduaneira (AT), Bottomline Technologies, Celcom, Claro, ECI, Grupo Farmocos Especializados, Reliance Commercial Finance, Ross, 7-Eleven, and SriLankan Airlines.

"Oracle Exalogic is providing customers real business benefits through software and hardware engineered together," said Mohamad Afshar, vice president, Oracle Exalogic, Cloud Application Foundation and Java Cloud Service product management, Oracle. "It's not just increased performance and scalability; Oracle Exalogic is helping customers accelerate business processes, make more-informed decisions, and lower software and operating costs."

Oracle Exalogic provides extreme performance, reliability and scalability for Oracle Applications, Java and third-party software. More than 475 partner applications have been designated Oracle Exalogic Ready though Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), indicating that they are supported and ready to run on Oracle Exalogic. Additionally, over 50 partner applications have been tested and tuned with Oracle Exalogic to deliver speed, scalability and reliability to customers and have achieved Oracle Exalogic Optimized status.

With broad adoption across geographies, customers continue to turn to Oracle Exalogic to simplify enterprise application deployment, consolidation and virtualization. Customers cite a range of benefits from faster application deployment and response times to higher transaction throughput to improved IT staff productivity.

Agilent, a leading scientific measurement-equipment maker, was running its e-commerce site on legacy Microsoft.NET and Sharepoint technology that had become inflexible and could not scale. Oracle's innovative solutions, including Oracle Exalogic, helped Agilent improve customer experience, scalability, usability, and flexibility to drive e-commerce growth.

"By consolidating nine servers to one Oracle Exalogic, with Oracle ATG Web Commerce, Oracle Endeca and Oracle WebCenter Portal in a virtualized environment, we increased uptime to 99.9 percent and lowered software ownership costs. More importantly, after a few months with the Oracle solution in production, we saw 45 percent year-over-year growth in online revenues for the genomics site. This was a first in over two years for Agilent," said Caroline Tsou, director, Global Marketing Programs, Agilent.

"We can easily access the Oracle Exalogic-driven website, enabling us to make more-informed business decisions and to focus on more-strategic technology projects. With the Oracle solution we saw a 50 percent increase in requests for quotes in the first month of launch and it lets us take advantage of economies of scale and add new e-commerce tenants to the infrastructure as needed. This will speed the rollout of new online stores and reduce overall deployment costs," Tsou said.

Oracle continues to drive new innovation into its engineered systems and recently announced the Oracle Exalogic X5-2, which will provide customers the ability to run on premise the same Infrastructure as a Service and Platform as a Service capability offered in Oracle Cloud.
