"Fujitsu ETERNUS DX80 S2 storage system safeguards the “Data Mart” Project for China Eastern Airline"
China Eastern Airline, headquartered in Shanghai, is one of the three largest air transportation companies in China. Listed in 1997 on the Hong Kong, New York, and Shanghai stock markets, its business scope focuses on passenger and cargo, air transportation services. This covers everything from public air transportation, and the production and sale of related products, to the maintenance of aviation equipment. In January 2010, China Eastern Air Holding Company possessed assets worth in excess of RMB 100 billion Yuan, and had over 60,000 employees.
With a fleet of more than 400 aircrafts, China Eastern has an extensive flight network extending to 1000 cities in 187 countries. Each year they serve nearly 70 million travelers and rank among the world’s top 5 airlines in terms of passenger transportation volume.
Growing competition in the aviation market, has built pressure on China Eastern Airlines to launch their “Data Mart” project. This project is designed to discover new service opportunities, and drive customer service quality. However, such a vital, mission critical system needs a reliable storage platform that is flexible enough to adjust to future requirements. Additionally, the airline required a knowledgeable partner to provide expertise in service and support.
