San Francisco, CA – Feb 6, 2013 – Aria Systems, Inc., whose cloud services power subscription commerce for fast moving business, today announced that the Aria Subscription Billing Platform version 6 has achieved Oracle Exadata Ready status through the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN). Today’s announcement demonstrates that Aria Systems supports the Aria Subscription Billing Platform version 6 with Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Linux.
The Aria Subscription Billing Platform is an end-to-end cloud billing and subscription management solution that enables companies to quickly and cost-effectively deploy their online offerings and services. As customers rely on Aria Systems to capture their recurring revenue, the company needed to ensure maximum availability of its Platform. Oracle has enabled Aria Systems to deliver the high performance and availability that Aria’s customers expect, as well as the scalability to support rapid spikes in volume, such as accommodating a ten-fold transaction increase over the holidays without performance degradation. Aria Systems is a Gold level member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork.
Oracle Exadata Ready is part of the Oracle Exastack Ready program, which allows partners, such as Aria Systems, to be recognized by Oracle for developing, testing and tuning their applications on Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud or Oracle SPARC SuperCluster engineered systems. The Oracle Exadata Database Machine is the only database machine that provides extreme performance for both data warehousing and online transaction processing (OLTP) workloads, making it the ideal platform for database consolidation and database clouds. It is a complete package of servers, storage, networking, and software that is massively scalable, secure, and redundant. Oracle Linux, with its default Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, brings the latest Linux innovations to market, delivering extreme performance, advanced scalability, and reliability for enterprise applications, at a lower cost.
The Oracle Exastack Ready program recognizes Aria Systems as having applications that leverage the latest Oracle technology to better support joint customers. Aria Systems invested heavily in Oracle infrastructure solutions to ensure that its customers do not experience any downtime or performance degradation with the Aria Subscription Billing Platform that would negatively impact revenue streams from their online offerings. The company also ensures zero downtime for scheduled maintenance by using the live-release capabilities in Oracle Exadata Database Machine.
“Aria Systems needed a strong and reliable foundation on which to build the Aria Subscription Billing Platform, and in essence, our business,” said Oleg Ganopolskiy, vice president, Product Operations, Aria Systems. “Oracle delivered on all fronts and continues to help us grow.”
“When partners such as Aria Systems leverage the latest component products of Oracle Exadata Database Machine as the foundation for delivering highly secure, scalable and reliable SaaS applications, they benefit from a complete, integrated and cloud-ready infrastructure that will help them utilize new features and functionality and drive innovation, said Chris Baker, senior vice president, Worldwide ISV and OEM Sales, Oracle. “We are pleased to see Aria Systems achieve Oracle Exadata Ready status as this significant milestone helps equip them to deliver superior value to customers.”
