Oil business SK Energy found that its IT infrastructure was unable to keep up with response times demanded by business users. With the planned introduction of new business-critical SAP applications, SK Energy wanted to improve performance and implement a full disaster recovery solution. The challenge was to prepare this export-led business for future growth while minimizing the administrative costs. SK Energy migrated to SAP ERP 6.0 and IBM DB2 9 running under IBM AIX on IBM Power Systems servers; implemented disaster recovery solution based on IBM System Storage DS8000 platform, using IBM FlashCopy to mirror data between two data centers.
