For IT Ops
IT organizations are facing increasing pressure to deliver everything “as-a-service” so developers can get new applications to market quickly without engaging in “shadow IT practices”. And the same time, IT is still expected to maintain the highest SLAs, especially when production environments are concerned.
Standardize Deployments Platforms
A leading software vendor was looking for a new cloud-based platform to deploy a new database-centric application. Their IT Operations team also under pressure to reduce the time it took to provision a platform to app developers, while at the same time, drastically streamline operations to cut costs. IT was supporting a number of database platforms – all on different database versions, making simple database management tasks, such backups, upgrades and patches a nightmare. To add to the challenge, because their database application was mission-critical, SLAs were also very important.
IT Ops seized the opportunity to consolidate hundreds of databases on a highly available SQL database engine.
