In 2005, Dell's Information Technology group was faced with a supply chain management system that had reached its limits on expensive, proprietary servers running the Unix operating system. The group undertook the complete migration of the system to Oracle Database 10g and Real Application Clusters running on low-cost industry standards-based Dell Power Edge servers. By moving the application to Dell servers when it did, Dell IT avoided significant new expenditures in proprietary Unix-based servers, achieved increased server uptime, and provided an easy path for growing the systems as needed by adding additional servers to the cluster. This paper documents in detail the scope of the supply chain management system and the advantages of migrating it off of Unix-based servers.
