Boost Oracle Performance 20X with SSDs from Pillar Data Systems

Critical Applications Now Deliver Real-time Results; Energy Consumption Cut in Half, €400,000 in Cost Savings

San Jose, California – October 14, 2009 – When SETAO replaced its NetApp NAS system with the Pillar Axiom™, it provided the perfect architecture for the company’s Solid State Drive (SSD) deployment. Société d’Exploitation du Tramway et du réseau de bus de l’Agglomération d’Orléans (SETAO) manages the urban transportation network of the city of Orléans, France which transports about 100,000 passengers per day.

As part of that responsibility, the company runs a robust traffic simulation application to explore different re-routing scenarios for the best solution to a major accident or other traffic problem. Additionally, SETAO embarked on a new government security project to store and manage video from about 500 municipal surveillance cameras. In order to accommodate the sophisticated simulation application - while not hindering its performance with the massive amounts of archived video - SETAO decided to deploy SSD Bricks in its Pillar Axiom storage system.

“We had already seen our applications run seven to 10 times faster when we initially brought in the Axiom,” said Olivier Parcollet, IT Manager at SETAO. “But when we added the SSD Brick, it was beyond what we expected. We can run our simulation application 20 times faster using SSD, and we’ve also benefitted from huge cost and energy savings with the added efficiency measures.”
