Bodybuilding.com: Data replication helps fitness company stream visitors to its website

We have eliminated the two hours of downtime we used to have every night for our reporting database by switching to SharePlex.

Sean Scott, Oracle DBA, Bodybuilding.com

When reporting workloads began dragging down the performance of its website, Bodybuilding.com knew it needed to offload reporting to a separate database. But the IT team’s first solution — a daily static copy of the database — suffered from its own performance and downtime issues. Now, by maintaining a near real-time copy of its production database using SharePlex, Bodybuilding.com is able to keep website performance strong while enabling advanced analytics and ad hoc reporting 24x7 — all on an Oracle Standard Edition budget. Plus, SharePlex enables safer, seamless migrations that save the company up to $280,000 each by dramatically reducing downtime.
