Epic Clarity and Exadata Database Machine – White Paper
In the healthcare industry, Epic’s electronic health record (EHR) system is an industry leader. The Epic software platform is used in many of the largest, most complex healthcare organizations in the country.
The nature of this industry is to generate, store (forever), and analyze tremendous amounts of data.
Healthcare organizations that use Epic software often store these large data sets in the Epic Clarity data warehouse, supported either by a Microsoft SQL or Oracle database.
In 2016, Infolob Solutions—an Oracle Platinum Partner and a leader in managed IT services, enterprise application software, IT staffing and consulting, and application portfolio management—worked with Oracle to test the performance of Epic Clarity data warehouses running on Exadata Database Machine and on custom-built architectures. Oracle’s Exadata hardware platform was compared to and contrasted with a custom-built architecture as it relates to Epic Clarity. This white paper presents the results of those tests and highlights the performance and efficiency reasons for using an all-Oracle stack to support Epic Clarity.
