Tognum AG: Manufacturer Uses Data Compression to Cut Storage Costs and Save 175,000 Annually
Tognum AG makes and sells diesel and gas engines and gas turbines with output of up to 45,000 kilowatts. With 23 subsidiaries, hundreds of dealers, and its own manufacturing operations, Tognum AG faces a complex information environment. Data from Tognum sources is varied and constantly increasing, and the company needs a reliable and scalable database to support its business processes. So Tognum has standardized its systems on Microsoft SQL Server, which is helping it reduce storage costs through data compression and save money by improving system performance. By taking advantage of the data compression capability in SQL Server 2008 R2, Tognum AG is holding down data storage costs and accelerating data query results.
