Free registration required

Executive Summary

To sustain both quality and safety, Pilz GmbH & Co. KG wanted to consolidate their SAP servers to a strategic technology platform that would allow the company to exploit server partitioning and virtualization. The challenge was to find a cost-efficient way to protect data and deliver very high system availability. Pilz turned to IBM to provide a fully-redundant landscape for the SAP environment. The solution not only protects data with new mirroring techniques, but also actively manages the SAP applications and infrastructure to provide enhanced reliability. Two IBM System p5 550s have been clustered for high availability with IBM Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms. Pilz has also deployed IBM SAN Volume Controller to virtualize the storage hardware, and has migrated its databases to DB2.
