How three very different companies are managing rapid database growth

By Patrick Eitenbichler



Wanted to share three great customer success stories. The companies are very different from each other, but they’re all grappling with business challenges posed by surging data growth: meeting compliance obligations, controlling storage costs, and optimizing performance. The companies turned to HP Database Archiving software to solve these problems, and more.



Tektronix, a U.S.-based provider of test and measurement solutions to the electronics industry, improved application and database performance by more than 47%, and aced compliance tests in 29 countries, despite data growth of 1.25 GB per month.



Tong Yang Group, a Taiwanese automotive parts manufacturer, experienced data growth at a rate of 30-40 GB on average per month - impacting database performance and causing
user-related issues. Tong Yang saw an immediate 10% increase in efficiency in handling orders, and they gained the ability to support 7% business growth in 2009 despite the economic recession.



Turkey is both a private financial services company and the country’s central depository for dematerialized securities. The agency’s database grew 1000 times in a one-year period, due in part to industry regulations requiring financial services firms to store more data for longer periods of time. With HP Database Archiving software, the agency met its growing data archiving needs while reducing storage costs by 50%.’s Central Registry Agency
