Dell and Oracle Power Louisiana's State-of-the-Art Justice System in Baton Rouge

Anonymous Reader writes "ROUND ROCK, Texas and REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., March 24, 2003 - Computing platforms from Dell and Oracle are helping Louisiana's Nineteenth Judicial District Court provide law enforcement, judges and the public with real-time updates to important records.

The court is using Dell(tm) servers running Oracle9i Database with Real Application Clusters and Oracle9i Application Server on Red Hat Linux Advanced Server to archive court data online and distribute the latest information, which will assist in greater accuracy and efficiency for tasks such as issuing and recalling arrest warrants.

The platform will run the court's critical applications for case management, jury management and drug-court case management, working to improve interfaces with district attorneys, judges, state and local law enforcement, and constituents.

The Judicial Court is also using Oracle9i Application Server for its ACS Judicial Solutions application to manage the court schedules, records and related documents. Leveraging Oracle9i Application Server Portal, these ACS records and schedules are now managed online, providing county clerks and judges with a single consolidated view of their records for better management.

The Nineteenth Judicial Court chose the Dell/Oracle solution because it provides the ability to fully integrate its database securely, reliably and accurately with the Internet to disseminate the most current information.

"We are thrilled to see that after much study and comparison, the Dell/Oracle solution has met our needs to perfection, helping us to realize the long-standing goal of effectively sharing data with the Nineteenth Judicial Court as a first step of growth into a successful future," said Doug Welborn, clerk of court, East Baton Rouge Parish. "With more exciting plans on board as this first phase has begun implementation, we are confident that the Dell/Oracle partnership will bring the East Baton Rouge Court system to the forefront of operations in the South."

Public and private sector customers are deploying standards-based technologies from Dell, Oracle and Red Hat to achieve high performance and availability for mid-range and business critical applications that were once only associated with proprietary platforms, but at significant cost savings.

"The Nineteenth Judicial Court of Baton Rouge is building a state-of-the-art computing platform using standards-based technologies that will help them achieve the greater efficiency, accuracy and information sharing required by court systems today," said Jim Anderson, vice president in Dell's Advanced Systems Group. "These capabilities provide a valuable element of the area's homeland security efforts, such as the ability to share a variety of information across agencies."

The four-node cluster in Baton Rouge consists of Dell PowerEdge 6650 servers, each with four Intel(r) 2.0 GHz Xeon(tm) processors with the Dell | EMC CX400 SAN storage system. The platform runs Oracle9i Real Application Clusters and Oracle9i Application Server with Red Hat(r) Linux(r) Advanced Server.
