Aluminium supplier Alcoa has upgraded its multi-terabyte data warehouse to Oracle Database 10g and Oracle Real Application Clusters to improve efficiency.

Using the system Alcoa's executives are now able to access, manage and integrate global data from a single source to business analytics applications, such as Oracle's Hyperion Essbase, Hyperion Financial Management and Hyperion Planning - all components of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

Alcoa consolidated data from four regional instances of the Oracle E-Business Suite it has deployed globally into a single, global repository, to support its business analytics, enterprise performance management, and master data management initiatives.

With Oracle Real Application Clusters, Alcoa is able to incrementally add server capacity to adapt easily to growing business demands without disruption.

"The clustered database architecture that we have deployed has satisfied our business and performance requirements," said Matthew Schroeder, manager for business information and technologies at Alcoa.

"It also offers us the flexibility we need for future growth. The newly re-architected global data warehouse features, in addition to more powerful processors, improved performance and provides additional capacity for applications and users," he said
