ETERNUS All-Flash systems accelerates business-critical applications at pelzGROUP, besides offering large reserves for business growth

"The smooth and uncomplicated way in which the conversion to the FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS All-Flash systems was carried out – without a moment of downtime – really set this solution apart."

Jan-Peter Raichle, IT Team Leader pelzGROUP

Moving to a pair of FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS All-Flash systems has reduced access times and safeguarded critical just-in-time processes for the company

The customer

Founded in 1948 by Willy Pelz, pelzGROUP is a medium-sized family company with more than 750 employees. From its base in Wahlstedt in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein, it produces consumer goods that make everyday life easier and more enjoyable. It uses the latest technology to create high-quality industrial and consumer products from cotton wool, nonwoven fabrics and foils, including for brands such as Q-tips, Cosmea and Pely.

The challenge

pelzGROUP’s existing storage server from a competing manufacturer could no longer keep pace with its dynamic growth. Latency times for some of the company’s critical applications had become untenable. It began looking for a system that could keep up with it long-term.

The solution

A pair of FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS AF250 All-Flash systems reduce latency and significantly improve efficiency. Business-critical applications for the logistics and accounting departments now run at least ten percent faster. Further benefits include transparent failover and energy efficiency.

The benefit

  • Redundant, futureproof storage system
  • Business-critical applications now run ten percent faster
  • Not one minute of downtime during the conversion
  • Trusting, direct relationship with German-speaking representatives
