The customer

In 1990, Suning Commerce was established in Nanjing, China and is now the country’s largest privately owned commercial enterprise and in the top three privately-run enterprises. Suning Commerce ranks as the largest commercial retail enterprise in China with a brand value of 95.686 billion yuan. Suning is also a top tier enterprise for global home appliance chains with 180,000 employees and an annual sales revenue of 230 billion yuan.

‘Suning E-go’ is the organization’s e-commerce platform, responsible for all online and offline business, and was upgraded in 2010. This upgrade was necessary to accommodate product range expansion, from predominantly home appliances, to include general merchandise, books, and other products (totaling 15,000,000) to become one of China’s top three B2C companies. In the future Suning aims to increase sales revenue to 300 billion yuan by 2020 and to be the leading B2C brand in China.

China’s rapidly growing online shopping industry is expected to lead the nation’s economy in the next few years and is attracting interest from a variety of new industries, but in particular from many traditional retail companies. Now that the Suning E-go platform has ranked as the top e-commerce website, the company’s focus is firmly on online-business and further development of the e-commerce market. IT solutions are a key factor in its business growth, and technical resources and product/platform capability are essential for the e-commerce business to operate efficiently.

The challenge

  • The e-commerce website requires constant operation as any issues can affect customers’ experience and sales performance
  • System availability was the first priority as the IT system plays such a critical role
  • While there was room to improve energy efficiency and reduce operational expenditure by reducing power consumption, stability for the back-end system needed to be ensured

The solution

  • Suning implemented 500 servers to extend platform resources and meet demand for online transactions
  • Fujitsu implemented PRIMERGY RX300 S8 16 x 2.5 inch HDD as the base unit with an extremely low failure rate, high performance and reliability

The benefit

  • The highly reliable PRIMERGY RX300 S8 runs with an extremely low failure rate, ensuring the E-go platform’s constant operation. The first batch of servers 100% uptime for a full year (24/7 uninterrupted system operation for all tasks)
  • PRIMERGY RX300 S8 is equipped with 16 units of 2.5 inch HDD on local storage providing an efficient data processing solution while reducing system costs
  • Fujitsu Cool-safe technology enhanced energy-efficiency and reduced energy consumption by over 10%
