Cognizant and FlashGrid enable ERC to increase performance and slash DR costs by migrating Oracle RAC to AWS

April 19, 2022

Toll Operator Elizabeth River Crossings (ERC) modernized their toll tunnels with a digital system that collects fares at highway speeds. They partnered with Cognizant and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to create this solution and chose FlashGrid Cluster software to enable migration of their legacy on-premises system with Oracle RAC database backend to the cloud. The project resulted in an increase in performance of 90% and a reduction in DR costs by 70%.

Cognizant’s expertise in transportation and logistics enabled them to design a digital tolling system that relies on artificial intelligence and advanced database technology to create a scalable system that supports more than 100,000 motorists daily. Cognizant not only chose FlashGrid due to their proven AWS-recommended solution for Oracle RAC on AWS, but for their expert 24/7 Global Support.

“FlashGrid’s support impressed us. We could literally speak with a knowledgeable FlashGrid engineer around the clock.”

Rajendra Trehan, Senior Cloud Architect, Cognizant
