TIGI Linea tunes its web services and e-commerce transactions with Fujitsu M10-1 servers

"We can add and remove CPU resources as required, which allows us to dynamically scale while managing costs. We have also eliminated most of the support spend which had been spiraling out of control."

Freddy Fernandez Database Administrator TIGI Linea

TIGI Linea has deployed three Fujitsu M10-1 servers to virtualize its Oracle® E-Business Suite and e-commerce servers for faster speeds, lower costs, improved reliability and disaster recovery.


TIGI Linea produces and sells various hair care products, including shampoos, conditioners and lighteners, to hairdressers, salon owners and consumers. Now based in Lewisville, Texas, it was incorporated in 1985 and now operates as a subsidiary of global giant Unilever.


TIGI had relied on numerous SPARC® servers over the years, but they had become outdated, slow, and costly to support. TIGI wanted to find a more modern, flexible hardware platform with robust virtualization capabilities to support its critical e-business and e-commerce functions.


The company replaced seven legacy servers with three Fujitsu M10-1 servers, which now run Oracle E-Business Suite and web services for 350 global users. The SPARC64® X+ processors deliver blistering speeds within a compact 1U chassis.


  • Application performance has increased by 50 percent, making users more productive
  • Electricity and air conditioning bills have been cut dramatically courtesy of the reduced energy demand
  • TIGI can flexibly add and remove CPU cores to scale with the business and control software licensing spend
  • The Fujitsu M10-1 server’s small form factor frees up precious space in the data center
