Kopenhagen Fur saves energy and space by a host and virtual server infrastructure which furthermore runs five times faster than before

"Fujitsu has 100 percent lived up to our expectations, with an enormous increase in performance. Fujitsu’s servers have run flawlessly for the eighteen months we have had them."

Claus Andersen CIO Kopenhagen Fur

Customer

Kopenhagen Fur is the world’s biggest auction house for furs, as well as a global hub for the fur trade. Kopenhagen Fur is a cooperative society owned by Danish mink farmers, who are now some of the world leaders in mink breeding. Kopenhagen Fur is also a flagship of Danish fashion and design.

Challenge

Kopenhagen Fur needed complete disaster recovery support. It cannot risk a crash during an auction, or being cut off by a fire or flood.

Solution

Fujitsu was selected to supply Kopenhagen Fur’s entirely new server infrastructure, which was to consist of a combination of blade servers: 10 host servers and 200–250 virtual servers.

Benefit

  • Infrastructure is 100 percent reliable and provides complete disaster recovery
  • Takes up 25 percent of the space used previously
  • Performs 500 percent faster than previously
  • Saves DKK150,000 on electricity bills
