Mitsui & Co.,LTD: Trading Firm Standardizes on IT System Running in Innovative Private Cloud
Mitsui is a large Japanese trading company based in Tokyo. As part of its long-term business vision, the firm needed to ensure it had the right technology in place to help adapt to rapid market changes. To meet these goals, Mitsui deployed a new core system called MIRAI, which is based on SAP ERP Central Component 6.0. The company runs the system in an innovative private cloud based on Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V virtualization technology. It also uses Microsoft SQL Server 2008 for the 1-terabyte database. The flexible solution also reduces the company's data storage needs for SQL Server back up by up to 86 percent, increases availability, and helps Mitsui prepare for the future.
