Gabor Shoes Ensures Disaster Preparedness With a Centralized IBM Solution
Gabor Shoes AG is a leading shoe manufacturer based in Germany with production plants in Austria, Portugal, and Slovakia. Gabor Shoes has 2,700 employees throughout Europe and produces 26,000 pairs of shoes daily. Because of the global nature of the company, Gabor Shoes realized that a major failure of their IT infrastructure would have serious consequences for their business continuity and for their 4,700 business customers around the world. Gabor Shoes worked with IBM and IBM Premier Business Partner Fritz & Macziol GmbH to implement their new centralized infrastructure. Fritz & Macziol performed an in-depth risk analysis to plan the new environment, built across two redundant data centers.
