GAM optimizes performance with Oracle Private Cloud Appliance

Greater Amman Municipality cuts costs and optimizes performance with Oracle Private Cloud Appliance



The Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) provides high-quality municipal services to the city of Amman and focuses mainly on urban development. It adopts initiatives that improve the quality of life of local community members through effective planning, optimal investment of resources, and building partnerships with stakeholders. The Greater Amman Municipality currently encompasses 23,000 employees, users, and workers who, in turn, serve a population that covers an area of 1,700 square kilometers.

The project covers the deployment of Oracle Private Cloud Appliance, to host GAM’s vertical systems.

Oracle Private Cloud Appliance, is an integrated infrastructure system engineered to enable rapid deployment of converged compute, network, and storage technologies for hosting applications or workloads on a guest OS. It is a data center-class system that provides incremental and scalable performance optimized for consolidation of mixed workloads.
