Dimension Data, a USD6 billion global solutions and services provider, has invested in two Oracle SuperCluster half rack systems with various Oracle enterprise software components like Oracle Database and Oracle GoldenGate to run in its data centres as the key IaaS and CaaS platform for its Oracle client base.

Donovan Lawrence, Executive for Dimension Data Application Services explains the investment: "Our engineered services for Oracle ensures clients receive access to the fastest, most scalable and best engineered systems from Oracle. This gives flexibility to add or remove compute and storage resources on demand. With the Dimension Data engineered services for Oracle, we can set-up and run test, pre-production and production environments in the cloud whenever needed, for as long as needed, at a reduced cost while having access to the skills and expertise to assess, configure and manage the environment."

"Dimension Data worked closely with us to build an Oracle based Dimension Data owned Cloud Solution for the South African market," says Stefan Diedericks, Alliance and Channel Director for Oracle South Africa. "Dimension Data demonstrated leadership and vision in on-boarding such a solution, which can enable increased adoption of Oracle-based private and public cloud solutions by customers in South Africa."

Multi-tenant capable, Oracle SuperCluster allows for full-redundancy and high-availability and provides superior performance for clients while reducing licensing costs. The integrated solution provides a single support interface, common standards and short backup and recovery times.
