NCH Corporation Saves USD 5 Million Over Five Years with Intel® Xeon® Processor 7500 Series


NCH Corporation, a provider of industrial maintenance solutions, needed to establish a new instance of its global Oracle* database. A key decision: maintain consistency with the current IBM AIX* RISC-based platform or deploy the new instance on the Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series? NCH chose the Intel® processor-based solution and says by its calculations, the decision will save the company USD 5.5 million over five years in hard costs. The project also triples performance, reduces risk, and delivers critical business functionality.

“When I can tell our CFO the company will avoid spending more than USD 5 million and show a return of less than 12 months, it makes the decision obvious,” said David Kennedy, IT director for NCH. “The value proposition was attractive; it almost seemed too good to be true.”
