ADPC creates regional first with VMware and Oracle

Dubai: Abu Dhabi Ports Company’s Information Technology Unit (ADPC-IT) has announced the completion of its in-house virtualisation project and in doing so has created a unique operating platform that is regarded as a regional first.

A VMware overlay of Oracle applications has not been done before in the Middle East, at least not in terms of the complexity and consolidated number of operational and applications suites that have been successfully integrated into a unique hybrid platform.

Further to the announcement, ADPC-IT has said that the newly consolidated infrastructure has shown immediate benefits, with IT performance levels now up by at least 50%.

The completion of Phase 2 of the project has also delivered massive cost savings for the company – estimates already suggest a figure of over AED4mn ($1.1mn).  [17/04/13]
