Oracle engineered systems power CISDI to establish Cloud computing platform

30 Apr 2012 Redwood Shores - Cisdi Information Technology Co. Ltd. has selected Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Oracle Exadata Database Machine for its Cloud computing platform. The move is designed to help improve CISDI INFO's capabilities to offer complete solutions for customers, and help it achieve its strategic objective to become the "International Engineered Technology Company and the Engineered Technology Service Provider - the first choice of steel companies".

As a fully-owned subsidiary of CISDI Group, CISDI INFO provides leading information solutions, experience and capabilities for the engineering and construction industries and iron and steel customers. CISDI INFO has become an expert in providing construction industry solutions, which help improve management effectiveness and efficiency, on a Cloud computing platform.

The CISDI Cloud Computing Platform is a cost-effective information system allowing enterprises to demonstrate and manage their design results on the design service platform. The release of CISDI Cloud Computing Platform is designed to support the rapid growth and development of small design companies in Chongqing and attract more global design organisations to the city.

With Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Oracle Exadata Database Machine, CISDI INFO plans to go through three phases in the construction of its Cloud computing platform: first, it will relocate its existing database to Oracle systems, establishing the private Cloud for CISDI; secondly, it will gradually provide mixed Cloud services for its subsidiaries and partners; and finally, it will become an industry public Cloud with a more mature environment, more secure technologies and improved methods, providing public Cloud services for customers in the engineering construction and steel industries, among others.

To create the Cloud computing platform, CISDI INFO plans to relocate its current production database to Oracle Exadata to create a private Cloud environment and leverage Oracle's Cloud computing technology and solutions to construct a Cloud environment which can fully demonstrate the capabilities of CISDI INFO. After the enterprise information system's management system is in place, all the data will be transferred to Oracle Exalogic and Oracle Exadata, which is designed to provide measurable service improvements for business departments.

The new Cloud computing platform is designed to provide access to the shared computing resources pool in a self-service, dynamic, elastic and measurable way. Its flexible and scalable Grid structure can support elastic expansion and sustainable growth, and can bring significant benefits in speed, agility and efficiency. Further, the platform can greatly cut down deployment and maintenance costs.

Additionally, to facilitate the smooth implementation and release of this project, Oracle will provide CISDI with a technical team, project management support and technical consultation, helping control implementation risks.

"Based on Oracle Exadata and Oracle Exalogic, the Cloud computing platform can help us better support internal information management and provide diversified and customized Cloud service solutions for all kinds of ecosystem enterprises", Li Zhiyou, CEO of CISDI INFO, stated. "The platform can also help us realize our goal of becoming the 'International Engineered Technology Company and the Engineered Technology Service Provider - the first choice of steel companies'."

"Regardless of whether we construct private Clouds, public Clouds or mixed Clouds, Oracle's engineered systems are the best choice for industry-leading technology", Edwin Lo, Senior Vice President and Managing Director Oracle Greater China, stated. "We are glad to see that Oracle has an opportunity to work with CISDI to establish its Cloud computing platform. We can continue to provide powerful business support for more local companies with our innovative products."
