"When we were considering upgrading our present system, we explored two options with Enkitec -- building an Oracle RAC environment ourselves with parts from multiple vendors or choose an integrated solution like Exadata," said Burke Autrey, senior vice president, IT, SOURCECORP BPS. "What attracted us to Oracle Exadata Database Machine was the integrated nature of the system, Enkitec's experience and positive results with Exadata, and the benefits of having a single vendor provide support for the entire solution."
