at Citizen Watch Europe
The challengePowerful IT infrastructure – the creation of a powerful and scalable IT infrastructure for a SAP application landscape Technology change from HP-UX to Microsoft Windows Server 2003 – and efficient and cost-cutting approach Parallel storage consolidation – for simpler administration and faster backup processes.
More performance, better administration and higher availability of the SAP applications in use – these are benefits that Citizen Watch's European headquarters, which is located in Hamburg, is enjoying very much.
They are the result of a platform change from HP-UX to Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and the parallel introduction of a powerful storage system. SAP migration and storage consolidation were facilitated by three PRIMERGY servers, the Eternus storage system, two Brocade SAN Fibre Channel switches and two APC UPS systems. One server, together with the virtualisation software VMware, is used as a virtualisation environment for other applications. The applications are used at a total of around 100 stationary and 30 mobile workstations.
