August 30, 2004,
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. — Overstock.com is standardizing on Oracle as the foundation of its data-management infrastructure in an effort to ensure customers can access the company’s Web sites.
Following reviews and tests of database software from Oracle and others, Overstock.com decided to expand its relationship with Oracle based on product performance, reliability and scalability, stated the company.
“A few quarters ago, we turned to Oracle to help us address critical data-management challenges,” said Shawn Schwegman, vice president of technology with Overstock.com. “Overstock.com has overcome those challenges with the help of Oracle technology — which has delivered remarkably scaleable computing power. We’re now working with Oracle to deploy an enterprise grid that will enable us to align our IT systems to address our most significant business priorities.”
