About The Customer
Canon is a Japanese multinational corporation specialized in the manufacture of imaging and optical products, including cameras, camcorders, photocopiers, steppers, computer printers and medical equipment. Its headquarters are located in Tokyo, Japan.
The Challenge
Canon wanted to build an infrastructure to enable IoT system to process large amounts of data received from more than 1 million multifunction printers, and support 2x anticipated growth in the number of printers connected to the IoT, and ensure migration to the IoT platform to minimize disruption to global office-products business operations, and deploy a easy-to-manage disaster recovery system to reduce the switchover time in the IoT environment.
The Solution
The solution package includes Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, Oracle Coherence, Oracle Service Bus, Oracle Event Processing, Oracle Real Application Clusters, Oracle GoldenGate and Oracle Active Data Guard. The solution package helps Canon improve system performance through receiving and processing large volumes of printer data 5 times faster than what it used to be.
