As the second-largest shipper in the world, Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) must access and share operational data with global employees and partners all day, every day to deliver excellent service. To facilitate growth, MSC needs to maintain 99.999 percent availability while improving performance and lowering costs - which is no small achievement given the complexity of the company's IT architecture. In 2011, the company began to update core systems with new software from Microsoft to implement innovative availability and disaster recovery capabilities. As a result, MSC can facilitate growth by speeding data access, minimizing downtime, improving security, and reducing costs.
