REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud Creek Systems (CCS), Inc., a Southern California based Oracle Certified Partner, is pleased to announce that it was recognized by Oracle as the leading Oracle RAC and Grid partner for 2007. As a result, Cloud Creek Systems was awarded the 2007 RAC / Grid Titan award for its outstanding and innovative technology implementations in high-availability and scaleable solutions. This award is given to Oracle Partners who demonstrate leadership and the highest level of expertise for specific Oracle solutions.

eHarmony, the #1 trusted relationship service on the Internet, relied on Cloud Creek Systems to develop and help maintain their Oracle database platform for their highly available Compatibility Matching System. eHarmony has a user-base of 18 million members and adds thousands daily. Their demanding requirements required they utilize a highly scalable and available platform for their technology. They looked to Cloud Creek Systems for expertise and guidance.

eHarmony's patented Compatibility Matching System, developed from 35 years of clinical and empirical research, required a 24-hour, seven days a week solution to support its growth. Cloud Creek Systems worked with eHarmony to design multiple cutover strategies, and executed the cutover with minimal downtime into an Oracle Active-Active Clustered environment providing a highly available and scaleable solution. Today, eHarmony has a "Buy as you need solution" to meet eHarmony's additional processing power needs as their business continues to grow. Today this system supports in excess of 10,000 new user registrations daily, over 1000 transactions per second (TPS) average load, and a 100TB storage platform.

Using its industry and technology expertise, Cloud Creek Systems worked collaboratively with eHarmony to migrate their technology infrastructure from SQL Server Database to an Oracle Database Platform utilizing Oracle's industry-leading clustering and storage management solutions: Oracle Database 10g, Oracle Real Application Clusters, Oracle Automatic Storage Management, Oracle Partitioning and Oracle Grid Control on multiple Sun Fire X4600 servers and a 3PAR SAN.

Cloud Creek Systems configured Oracle RAC and Grid control and led the training of eHarmony's staff allowing a single DBA to manage their entire Production and Data Warehousing infrastructure. Through these substantial resource and cost savings, eHarmony now focuses its infrastructure and application team toward strategic objectives instead of intensive day-day tasks.

"Cloud Creek Systems brought rare technical and innovative out-of-the-box expertise to our migration and the Oracle RAC / Grid architecture that we could not find anywhere else." said Mark Douglas, Vice President of Technology, eHarmony. "Today we continue to utilize Cloud Creek Systems for other Oracle expertise and performance tuning because they consistently exceed expectations in our constantly evolving environment where we confidently need to support more users and improve Web Site performance."
