A data center refit with Fujitsu ETERNUS and PRIMERGY storage and server gives Stechert reliability and flexibility

"The main reason behind our decision to invest in the Fujitsu ETERNUS technology was that it enables us to quickly resume productivity after an IT failure. This kind of security is very important to our business operations."

Harald Zimmermann, Head of IT, Stechert Stahlrohrmöbel GmbH

The customer

Over the past 60 years, family-owned furniture company Stechert Stahlrohrmöbel GmbH has developed an excellent reputation as a manufacturer of high quality tables and chairs for offices, businesses, lecture halls and sporting venues. So it is no surprise that its slogan is: Top quality, made in Germany. Stechert’s seats can be found in sports stadiums across Germany, Europe, Africa and Brazil, including Berlin’s Olympiastadion and five of the venues which hosted the football World Cup in South Africa. The company also manufactures office and commercial furniture for concert halls, hotels, restaurants, universities, hospitals and company headquarters. Its industrial operations are split across three specialized sites in Germany: Wilhermsdorf, Trautskirchen and Gössnitz.

The challenge

Refitting the data center, renovating the SAP infrastructure, redesigning the data center concept and increasing availability to cope with future expansion.

The solution

This solution enables the company to run all of its applications, particularly SAP applications and SAP databases, more easily, quickly and efficiently.
