SendThisFile Turns to Oracle With Despatch
Fast Growing Small Business Relies On Oracle® 10g to Send Big Files
WICHITA, KS - 18-DEC-2006 - SendThisFile is a small company whose business is big files - and Oracle technology plays an important part in its success. SendThisFile, Inc. operates website sendthisfile.com, which offers an internet-based file transfer service for consumers and businesses alike. By expediting the fast, reliable and secure transfer of large files, SendThisFile enables its customers to bypass the usual problems associated with using e-mail for this purpose, such as inadequate quotas, ISP limitations, insecure transfers and more.
For consumers, SendThisFile operates a basic, fast transfer service for single large files at no charge to the user. For businesses, its Trusted File Transfer Service provides logging, encryption and integration into customer websites among its premium services. Using Oracle 10g technology as the backbone of its IT systems enables SendThisFile to offer a fast, reliable and secure service demanded by large enterprises such as Dupont and Siemens, who number among SendThisFile’s 400,000 users.
“We need a bullet-proof infrastructure for our service, and Oracle has a great reputation for providing reliable, high-performance and scalable technology,” said Aaron Freeman, founder of SendThisFile. “More than that, our use of Oracle gives us credibility when we do business with large enterprises, as this differentiates us from our competition and marks us out as using a world-class foundation with an award-winning support organization on call. We can thus feel comfortable going after the big business market, which again sets us apart from the rest.”
Oracle Database 10g Standard Edition One is at the heart of their website, running on Linux-based commodity hardware. It offers small business like SendThisFile the performance, reliability and security of Oracle Database 10g at a low entry cost on two-processor servers. It also offers complete upward compatibility to larger servers, thus providing the scalability that SendThisFile needs. Currently, business is booming and the company is adding servers and capacity on a regular basis. The database itself has grown by over 150 per cent in only six months and SendThisFile has shipped well over 6 million files. .
“We started up using MySQL, but soon found that we had problems scaling up to meet the rising demand,” continued Freeman. “Our prior experience with Oracle in a different firm led us to evaluate and select Oracle Database 10g Standard Edition One, which is doing a fantastic job for us now - administratively, it’s practically hands-off. It’s also very comforting to know that, as we go on, we can call on functions such as Oracle Real Application Clusters and Oracle Enterprise Manager to give us the cost-effective scaling and top-notch management capabilities that a service such as sendthisfile.com has to offer to stay ahead of the competition.”
“Oracle Database 10g Standard Edition One is a key part of our proposition for small and medium-sized businesses,” said Willie Hardie, vice president of Database Product Marketing, Oracle Corporation. “SendThisFile’s adoption of it is a textbook example of what Oracle does very well - enable an organization to start small with competitively-priced IT that meets customers service level expectations, and easily to scale those IT systems to meet demand as it grows.”
