Suning Commerce Group builds up a new data center infrastructure to support its online retail operations and reduce maintenance efforts

"Fujitsu is a partner that has extremely rich experience and a deep level of understanding. It can deliver the necessary project implementation quickly and with minimal digressions."

Zhang Yi Lun IT Manager, Suning Commerce Group

Suning needed to cope with the growing volume of internet trading. It partnered with Fujitsu to build a new data center using PRIMERGY servers and ETERNUS storage.

Customer

In 1990, Suning Commerce Group 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 ranks as the largest commercial retail enterprise in China with a brand value of almost 96 billion yuan. It is also a top tier enterprise for global home appliance chains with 180,000 employees and an annual sales revenue of 230 billion yuan.

Challenge

Following a massive growth in its online retail, Suning’s old data center could no longer cope with the volume. The company needed to build a new data center that could handle the growing demand while also simplifying the management of a complex software environment.

Solution

Suning selected Fujitsu as its key hardware partner and together they installed over 1,000 Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers supported by Fujitsu ETERNUS storage to support the delivery of multiple critical applications, including a MAX&Co. database, WildFly middleware, and a Sybase database.

Benefit

  • Suning now enjoys improved performance, simplified management and lower energy costs
  • The system can easily scale to meet future demands and has in-built disaster recovery and backup support
  • By reducing maintenance requirements, the Fujitsu solution has reduced the need for human intervention and speeded inspection times tenfold
