Challenges

Victorinox’s ERP system plays an essential role in the company’s IT environment, accounting for about 80 percent of its users. Working with business-critical data requires maximum uptime, performance, and agility. It was particularly in the area of performance that problems increasingly arose in the past.  Application response times — and the IT systems in general — proved to be too slow, with delays that hindered the users’ work. The ERP system needed to deliver more power — but it was already stretched to its limits due to inadequate storage capacity and performance.

  • Overload and performance problems with previous storage solution hindered work.
  • ERP system’s power requirements are high.
  • The company needed to adapt its storage resources for business growth.

Results

Business Transformation

The new storage system resulted in a 20 percent faster response speed when accessing the ERP system. Thanks to its architectural advantages and highly efficient data reduction, Victorinox can meet current requirements in a lean and cost-efficient manner, as well as react effectively and agilely to future business requirements. Additionally, the Pure Evergreen™ Storage model protects investments to a great degree, and enables huge savings in full-cost accounting over several years.

IT Transformation

  • Data reduction ratio reached 3.2:1 for all workloads including VDI and SQL; providing 20 percent faster  user access.
  • Easy-to-use storage environment required no outside assistance or additional software.
  • Higher virtualization engine throughput was achieved  as predicted.
  • Significant time was saved when performing maintenance and booting the virtualized environment.
