Holding YDUQS modernizes its IT Infrastructure by partnering with Cirion and Oracle

Updating the computing environment, with the migration to Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer, allows YDUQS to focus on its strategic objectives, while optimizing its costs, offering greater service availability and improving the student experience


São Paulo, March 6, 2024YDUQS, one of Brazil’s most important educational groups retained the technological services of Cirion Technologies, a leading provider of digital infrastructure and technology to migrate all the production databases of the institution to Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer environment, thus updating their business support infrastructure.

YDUQS offers a diverse portfolio of educational institutions, including — Estácio, Ibmec, IDOMED, Wyden and Damásio, covering a wide range of courses and modalities. 

In 2020, YDUQS sought to upgrade its IT infrastructure to tackle the growing challenges of the educational market. The institution needed a flexible, scalable and secure solution, which also offered high performance and availability for their critical systems.

Further to a rigorous selection process, Cirion was chosen as a technological partner, responsible for migrating all YDUQS production databases to Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer, deploying Universal Credits model, thus ensuring data resiliency by replicating the environment to another Data Center. The company’s new environment hosts business applications and offers greater availability of the service provided to their students, improving response time to their requests.

This solution provides the company with greater stability, flexibility and security, in addition to optimizing costs and allowing the institution to focus on its strategic objectives.

Benefits of the Solution 

Migrating to Exadata provided YDUQS with several benefits, including: 

  • Increased stability and performance:  Optimized environment for Oracle Database, resulting in a significant increase in system performance and availability.
  • Flexibility and scalability: The solution is highly flexible and scalable, thus enabling a fast and efficient response to your needs.
  • Security and reliability: State-of-the-art security and reliability resources to ensure that the institution data will be protected.
  • Cost Optimization: Oracle’s solution offers a flexible payment model adjustable to customer needs. The institution pays a monthly recurring price for a set of basic resources (baseline), which guarantees predictability and cost control. In times of high demand, the institution can scale up the OCPUs (central processing units) and pay only for the baseline surplus. This flexibility enables IT cost optimization, paying only for the resources you use.

“YDUQS found the ideal partner in Cirion, since they provide us with daily management support, ensuring Oracle database maintenance and support. Thus our team is able to focus on our apps specifications and in our customers experience  (students) sparing the complexities of support infrastructure,” said Rodrigo Coutinho, IT Director for YDUQS. “The new structure is the foundation for our business digital transformation”.

“YDUQS is a great example for the kind of challenges that Cirion can help you solve. Our professionals are trained to act from their first contact to daily operations support, evaluating IT needs based on our customers’ business demands”, said Rodrigo Oliveira, Data Centers Director for Cirion Brazil.
