GRTgaz streamlines its IT infrastructure with Oracle Super Cluster

"We asked Fujitsu to interleave our applications and it has been a real success in terms of deadlines and performance."

Hervé Constant, DIS, GRTgaz

The customer

GRTgaz constructs, operates and develops a high pressure natural gas network, which covers the majority of the French territory. It transports natural gas to shippers, industrial clients and local distribution networks. GRTgaz also provides connection services for transport networks to allow industrial clients to directly access the natural gas wholesale markets and freely choose a supplier. It is the leading high pressure natural gas transport network in Europe.

The challenge

  • To implement a global solution to interleave the information system while complying with important time, budget and performance constraints
  • Negotiating with the publisher of license agreements

The solution

Migrating the Solaris and AIX (Unix BM) environment to a unified Oracle architecture including:

  • An application layer based on the latest version of Oracle Solaris
  • A hardware layer: Oracle SuperCluster, engineered system
  • A set of associated services for each layer

The benefit

  • A unified environment for the entire information system: Solaris
  • Better overview of the IT system
  • Contractual performance commitments
  • A single point of contact throughout the project to simplify exchanges between the various stakeholders
