News Facts

Electro-Wire, Inc.®, a leading wire and cable distributor and contract manufacturer serving telecommunications, transportation, military and government organizations, has implemented Oracle's SPARC T4 servers with Oracle Solaris to power its Oracle E-Business Suite. •As part of a migration to the Oracle E-Business Suite, Electro-Wire, Inc. required a more robust hardware platform to support its enterprise resource planning system, and selected Oracle's SPARC T4-1 servers for their high performance, reliability and virtualization capabilities. •Oracle's SPARC T4-1 server infrastructure will support all functions required by Electro-Wire, Inc. for its wire and cable distribution and contract manufacturing business, including inventory management, order processing, forecasting, engineering and logistics, for an improved customer experience. •Oracle's SPARC T4-1 servers are expected to deliver a 30-40 percent increase in performance compared to its previous solution, which will help accelerate batch processing and increase the number of jobs that can be run. •Electro-Wire, Inc. is also virtualizing their Oracle E-Business Suite deployment using Oracle VM Server for SPARC software with Oracle Solaris ZFS for redundancy and disaster recovery. •Oracle VM will help Electro-Wire, Inc. streamline the process of creating database file copies, setting up CPUs and memory, and importing the ZFS volume. In addition, Electro-Wire, Inc. has created virtual containers for Oracle Solaris, so it can be moved to different systems, if needed. •Oracle Solaris ZFS provides an additional level of system reliability and application performance through the integration of file system and volume management capabilities and gives Electro-Wire, Inc. the flexibility to add or remove storage dynamically without interrupting services. •While Electro-Wire, Inc. is currently running its entire IT environment in a single-tier architecture, Oracle's SPARC T4-1 servers also provide the flexibility to easily run applications in a multi-tier environment. •Electro-Wire, Inc. is using Oracle Financial Management, Oracle Human Capital Management, Oracle Order Management, Oracle Supply Chain Planning, and Oracle Manufacturing.
