Vanderbilt University has
migrated its critical business operations to Oracle software and expects to
achieve a 185 percent return on its investment running Oracle on Linux.
Prompted by a 3,000 percent increase in data growth over the past two years,
the Nashville, Tenn.-based university faced budget and cost containment issues
while maintaining several decentralized databases. The institution's
information technology team determined that as the university expanded, it was
critical to consolidate its vital database and storage needs to improve
information access and lower maintenance costs.
