MAN Diesel & Turbo A/S is the world’s leading provider of large-bore diesel and gas engines and turbomachinery. The product portfolio includes two-stroke and four-stroke engines for marine and stationary applications, turbochargers and propellers as well as gas and steam turbines, compressors and chemical reactors.
MAN Diesel & Turbo A/S continuously works on the improvement of the security of IT systems and components. They launched the ITSP+ project to reach a next level of security. The ITSP+ project focuses on requirements based on IT standards and best practices. These requirements needed to be implemented for the entire Oracle DB infrastructure. MAN Diesel & Turbo A/S was already using Puppet for the total day-to-day operational control and various other recurring tasks, so using Puppet for the Oracle DB infrastructure as well was a logical next step.
MAN Diesel & Turbo A/S soon found their way to Enterprise Modules and its
ora_config module. This module is designed to control entire Oracle DB infrastructures. Enterprise Modules provided MAN Diesel & Turbo A/S with a free 10 user license so that they could thoroughly test the module. During the testing phase, the professional support of Enterprise Modules was crucial. After 4 weeks, MAN Diesel & Turbo A/S decided to purchase licences for their total Oracle DB infrastructure. Thanks to Puppet and the
ora_config modules, scaling and managing the Oracle infrastructure has become a very easy task.
By using Enterprise Modules, MAN Diesel & Turbo A/S is now able to guarantee compliancy to all its stakeholders. The security of its infrastructure is being checked continuously and the
ora_config module reports deviations, if any occur.
