There has been an enormous boost in performance – somewhere in the region of 180,000 IOPS, which means our critical EAM application runs twice as fast so users are more productive and less irritated.

KLM Equipment Services doubles the speed and performance of its applications with ETERNUS DX100 storage cluster


KLM Equipment Services B.V. (KES) operates as an independent subsidiary company of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. With Amsterdam Schiphol Airport as its permanent home base since 1952, the company has wide expertise in all aspects of ground support equipment (GSE): the vehicles and equipment responsible for the handling of aircraft on the ground, an indispensable link in the logistical processes of all airports. KES’s goal is to realize low operational cost, while maximizing the availability of this equipment.


KES’s old storage platform was plagued with performance issues and did not have the capacity to cope with the latest version of Infor EAM. The company needed to find a flexible, cost-effective alternative that would deliver increased performance, capacity and improved reliability.


KES worked with the awarded Fujitsu Select Circle Partner SJ-Solutions B.V. and Fujitsu to design and deploy two clustered FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS DX100 devices over two sites to support EAM, finances, ERP and other core business functions for 150 users.


  • Doubles application performance making users more productive and less frustrated
  • Provides dynamic full disaster recovery with second, mirrored ETERNUS storage cluster device for optimal availability
  • Lowers energy consumption for storage by 40 percent, reducing electricity bills, cooling and minimizing environmental impact
