Case Study: Migros

Migros has used HP servers for its business-critical processes of retail management since 2003. On the application side the industry solution SAP Retail is used. However, as a result of rising costs, mainly due to maintenance and power consumption, and a decrease in available IT resources, the company’s IT managers decided to replace the system with a

contemporary installation.

 

As the requirements remained the same, especially with regard to the 99.95 per cent application availability, the new environment needed to enhance performance and quality, with lower operating costs. At the same time, the new system needed to be highly available, reliable, and flexible enough to be extended whenever the company required. Migros opted for an Intel-based server solution consisting of HP Integrity and x86 blade servers. The computers are physically located in two redundant data centres at different locations.

 

Check out these results:

 

  • Operating costs were reduced by 52%, delivering an ROI of less than 12 months
  • Energy consumption was lowered significantly, enabling the company to run leaner and greener
  • Continuous availability is assured for mission-critical SAP retail management applications
  • The flexible, extendable server environment makes it easy to add capabilities as business requirements grow
  • Investments are protected thanks to a long-term technology lifecycle

"Maximum availability and reliability, performance and scalability are key requirements in our SAP sector. That’s exactly

what the new HP Integrity platform provides." Peter Rieder, IT infrastructure manager, Migros-Genossenschafts-Bund
