IBM Virtualization Powers Oracle Rollout at Amway Corporation

CNN Money:
"Amway Corporation has selected a virtualized IBM (NYSE: IBM) server infrastructure for a worldwide rollout of Oracle's enterprise resource planning applications, the company announced today. The decision to run the applications on hundreds of virtual servers -- rather than an equivalent number of physical boxes -- is expected to provide a significant savings in energy, software and labor costs, Amway said.

The Oracle e-Business Suite applications -- including order entry, financials and shipping -- will be deployed on multiple System p systems, with logical partitions ranging from three to thirty on any given frame. Running the AIX operating system, these machines will handle production, development, test, and quality assurance functions and will serve organizations throughout the company globally."
