We began by evaluating the system performance and identifying problem areas within the infrastructure, finding a lack of operating system and database management to be the main issue, alongside some errors within the application code. Initially, to create a stabilised environment, we patched the operating system and tuned the Oracle database to improve functionality.
We then stepped in to work in conjunction with the client’s application vendor to resolve application coding issues, and identified a further need to implement measures to eliminate the risk of entire data loss due to a reliance on a single-site AIX High Availability Cluster Multiprocessing.
Having discussed the backup and recovery options available to the client, we designed and implemented a third remote server. This acted as an offsite Dataguard environment stored at a central location, providing a simple yet effective solution to data vulnerability.
We worked with a partner who specialises in government-grade systems and solutions on behalf of the Ministry of Defence (MOD)
A leading supermarket chain experiencing rapid growth helping to service its growth, they needed a new IT system that would be reliable, robust and scalable with a fast database at its core.
