Three U.S. universities have recently adopted Oracle technology for registration and student systems to reduce server footprint and improve system performance.
The universities that deployed the Oracle Exadata Database Machine included the University of Arkansas, Northern Illinois University and Brigham Young University, Oracle announced Thursday.
The University of Arkansas also used PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, Oracle WebCenter content and locally-developed Java applications during student registration period.
Northern Illinois University used Oracle Exadata to replace an aging IT infrastructure that is used by over 22,000 undergraduates and graduate students at the university.
Cole Clark, Oracle global vice president of education and research, said Oracle offerings are intended to save organizations money by consolidating IT infrastructure and being able to store more data.
Finally, Brigham Young University used Oracle Exadata to complement its existing use of Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, PeopleSoft Financial Management and PeopleSoft Human Capital Management for its critical campus system.
