Signature Styles, a leading marketer of women's apparel and accessories, is using Oracle's Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage System product line to reduce costs and simplify storage requirements while also increasing performance.

• Comprised of the Spiegel, Newport News and Shapefx brands, Signature Styles needed an enterprise-class storage system to house the company's critical customer data, as well as voluminous creative and advertising content for its mail order catalogs and Websites.
• Using the Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage System product line, Signature Styles was able to consolidate eight storage systems from six vendors into one unified storage system with a single, simple point of management.
• With the system's replication and snapshots features, Signature Styles was able to eliminate tape backups and implement a cost effective, robust disaster recovery solution that can recover files and customer data in seconds.
• The Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage product line's built-in inline deduplication and compression capabilities led to 73 percent compression ratios on unstructured data, significantly reducing the company's storage costs.
• The system delivered a 3x increase in performance while decreasing cooling requirements by 30 percent compared to their previous infrastructure.
• The storage system's Flash Hybrid Storage Pools improves MySQL database response times when accessing Signature Style's customer data.
• Using Oracle migration tools, Signature Styles was able to migrate 23 TB of data from its legacy storage systems to the new Oracle system in less than three days with no downtime and zero data corruption.
• Signature Styles also uses Oracle's Sun Servers and Oracle Solaris to run the company's customer analytics.

"Moving to Oracle's Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems has delivered significant benefits, most importantly simplified storage management and cost savings," said Elvis Cernjul, vice president, Information Technology, Signature Styles. "With Oracle, we now have a unified storage solution that delivers built-in innovative technologies like snapshots and mirroring that have altered the way we do business. Everything in our environment relies on Oracle's Sun Storage 7000 -- our powerhouse storage system."
