Vodafone upgrades enterprise data warehouse

Backup and recovery also improved

Mobile carrier Vodafone Australia will upgrade its enterprise data warehouse (EDW) platform to increase capacity and performance.

The upgrade to its existing Teradata EDW platform will double the capacity and improve performance by 30 to 40 percent, according to Vodafone.

The new EDW will cater for Vodafone Australia's requirements and will also support the data warehousing requirements of Vodafone Fiji.

Vodafone's expansion of its EDW includes 14 additional nodes of an NCR 5450 server with 80 terabytes disk, an analytic data set implementation, and a backup, archive, and restore infrastructure upgrade.

The upgrade follows a recent move by Vodafone to the Teradata customer relationship management environment.

Vodafone Australia general manager of information systems Neil Fraser said the upgraded EDW will support the company over the coming years and "absorb the growth" in call volumes which it has experienced over the last few years.

The new EDW will also include a move to a multi-temperature design, which improves storage efficiency by "self-managing" both frequently accessed and less frequently accessed data, tagging it either "hot" or "cool" depending on use.

General manager of Teradata sales for Australia and New Zealand Noel Pettitt said the opportunity to provide an upgrade to the enterprise data warehouse for Vodafone Australia is significant for both companies.

"It will provide a more flexible backup, archive and restore strategy to allow Vodafone Australia to land information, seven days a week, to support the sales, marketing and service divisions' information requirements," Pettitt said.
