The automotive industry depends on streamlined production processes, and requires its suppliers to deliver the right components at the right time. To meet these business challenges, Weber Automotive GmbH needs a highly available and responsive IT infrastructure to govern production processes - but its existing environment was underperforming, preventing the company from meeting business goals. Weber Automotive migrated its SAP software environment from a number of ageing Intel-based servers to just three IBM System p5 550Q servers, running 64-bit Linux and MaxDB. The company also installed a SAN based around an IBM System Storage DS4700, and is using IBM Tivoli System Automation to provide high availability.
