E-Commerce Company Speeds Performance by 30 Percent With Microsoft, IBM, and SAP
Komplett, a leading Scandinavian e-commerce company, needed to increase the scalability, flexibility, and stability of its IT infrastructure to facilitate rapid growth and deliver fast performance even during peak times. It also wanted to minimize risk and deploy a single customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution. Komplett engaged Microsoft Services and IBM consultants to design a highly available solution that includes Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise, and several SAP applications including SAP CRM. The solution also includes a virtualized IBM storage area network that will provide 150 terabytes of data capacity. With its new IT infrastructure, Komplett has sped database performance by 30 percent and slowed data growth by 75 percent by reducing database size.
