Think of the old ASP model. Application Service Provider. This was one of those situations where this model works very well!! Their individual customers have their own set of hardware/database and their data absolutely must never cross to another customers "system". And yes... patching was/is a LOT of fun.

I was also employed at another site not too far from the one mentioned in the video where we had 3000+ servers with 4500 database instances (Oracle(95%) , DB2, SQLServer)... and in that case, I had said they truly did NOT need that many... Received on Wed Jan 04 2012 - 10:37:52 CST
