Intensive care, mission-critical database and the importance of a fast response.
How WellData drives system performance to the max.
In 2005, world-leading motorsport and technology business Prodrive faced an uncertain future when their under-performing DBA suddenly left. Without adequate support for their business-critical Oracle-based ERP and PLM systems, they needed expert help quickly.
WellData stepped in and immediately got to work to make Prodrive’s systems more efficient and productive. Not only did we boost the performance and availability of their databases, we also delivered all improvements and day-to-day management at a fraction of the price Prodrive had been paying previously. Today, whether completely rebuilding a crashed database, providing extensive performance monitoring, or simply advising on the best Oracle syntax to use, we are always on hand to help.
Thanks to WellData, Prodrive’s Oracle database systems are running more reliably and efficiently than ever. By outsourcing its database management to us, Prodrive has the reassurance that downtime is kept to a minimum and it continues to make significant IT cost-savings.
“There’s an unflappability about Welldata and their staff which gives you, as a customer, confidence that these guys really know their onions. ‘Excellence’ is clearly their watchword and the Prodrive team have no hesitation in recommending their services.”
How WellData migrates databases to the cloud
Zenith, the UK’s leading independent leasing, vehicle outsourcing and fleet management provider, decided to move its Oracle databases into the cloud. Zenith operates a series of Oracle databases which were hosted on-site on an ageing HP/UX server. One of these databases was particularly large and contained all their business-critical contract notes. The project had a tight deadline due to the imminent expiry of several licences.
WellData researched a number of cloud solutions and found that Microsoft’s Azure platform would suit Zenith’s needs the best. We prepared a detailed statement of work and action-plan, and liaised with Zenith’s existing Azure support supplier. We built a secure VPN link between the Azure platform and the remaining on-site application systems. Meticulous planning of the data-transfer enabled the upload to happen via existing internet infrastructure. We staged the migration and used Oracle’s data pump tool to effect the transfer. All advice and consultancy for the project were included as part of our standard support contract.
The databases were moved securely and efficiently in groups over a series of weekends. The whole project was completed within the agreed timescale and within budget (as WellData always quotes a guaranteed fixed price), resulting in a satisfied customer. WellData continue to look after Zeniths systems.
