A major company that provides transportation services for the Dallas, Texas metroplex and its 12 surrounding cities. With its modern public transit and facilities the customer made the decision to begin the process of replacing their legacy HP-UX servers and re-platforming onto two Oracle Database Appliance X7-2-HA (ODA) with RAC and Active Data Guard.

The customer leveraged Viscosity North America (Viscosity) as a strategic partner for their team of world class architects and expertise for an on-site one week or two week training for their DBA team.
