At the start of this project, the Pensions Agency set-out to improve the efficiency of its database cloning without compromising the performance of its production environment. The first step towards this goal was to pick a data centre storage platform.

Under the guidance of Proact, the Pensions Agency introduced NetApp’s snapshot cloning technology. This has proved to be a cost-effective choice which has significantly reduced the amount of disk space required while also making the cloning process much faster.

To achieve optimal database performance, Proact’s advanced Oracle knowledge came into play. Database clones can now be created directly by the agency’s software developers and testers using a self-service portal. Creating database clones is now possible in just ten minutes, in comparison to three hours previously, enabling much faster response times and ore time to spend of enterprise development and support.
