Back to Case Studies

“We are now able to install, create and configure a full Oracle Middleware environment consisting of 6 HA Domains; 5 SOA Domains with AIA FP and 1 ODI Domain in 2 hours, as opposed to the 30 days it previously took to create manually.”

Eaton adopted Rubicon Red MyST to deliver a Private integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) for Oracle SOA, which allows Eaton to scale on-demand, including spinning up new SOA Environments as needed.

Platform as a Service for Oracle SOA 

Eaton’s core "philosophy" is to grow the business through acquisition, including the recent acquisition of Cooper Industries; a key enabler of this strategy is the continued IT integration of the systems of acquired companies with Eaton’s core systems.

Eaton adopted the Oracle SOA Suite approx. 4 years ago, since then it has become the core digital nervous system for enterprise integration; as its use of SOA has grown, this has placed additional demand on IT to rapidly scale out the existing SOA platform.

Historically, the process of provisioning Oracle Fusion Middleware environments has been a manual process, performed by third party consultants. This has proved to be time consuming, error prone and expensive. 

Platform as a Service

To meet future demands, Eaton has adopted Rubicon Red MyST to deliver a Private integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) for Oracle SOA, which allows Eaton to scale on-demand, including spinning up new SOA Environments as needed.

MyST is used to fully automate the provisioning of new environments as well as the ongoing configuration management and patching of existing environments.

Speed of Implementation

The initial implementation consisted of modeling the Platform Blueprints, which are used to define a standardized topology and configuration for all environments. Ensuring Eaton can provision a consistent middleware platform across all environments and prevent configuration drift.

Next, the Blueprints were used to fully automate the provisioning of the Development Domain, which consisted of a total of 7 Clustered Domains (6 SOA and 1 ODI).

The work was performed on-site by a single consultant within two weeks. 

User Adoption

Approx. 2 days training was provided to Eaton’s system administrators, which then enabled them to take the Platform Blueprints implemented for the Development Domain  and use them to automate the provisioning of the Test, QA and Prod Environments (each consisting of 6 WebLogic Domains).

Platform Maintenance

To make configuration changes, users just update the Platform Blueprint; MyST will perform the required steps to upgrade an environment.  

Platform Blueprints are placed under version controlled, providing complete control in promoting configuration changes across environments.

Result

With MyST, Eaton are able to provision a highly complex Oracle SOA Environment at the push of a button, with the entire process taking minutes; previously they would have been required to engage a 3rd party consultant to create manually, which typically took approx. 6 weeks to provision a single environment.

What was once a resource intensive and highly error prone process and been transformed into one that is automated, predictable and low risk.

Our customer case studies emphasis the increased speed through automation, increased productivity, and reliability through consistency achievable with Myst
