Lumber Liquidators needed to deploy a hardware platform that would support not only the company’s initial implementation, but also future incremental growth. Because this would be a new implementation, the company was concerned with minimizing total cost, delivering high availability and consistent performance to an increasing number of users, and simplifying the system maintenance for its streamlined IT staff.
Leveraging its longstanding expertise with SAP software, DataXstream tuned a virtualization solution specifically to support current SAP needs, while remaining flexible enough to grow incrementally as new deployment phases started. As a result, Lumber Liquidators reduced the amount of hardware by two-thirds compared to a traditional solution, thereby lowering its TCO.
Since 2002, DataXstream has leveraged the full flexibility and cost-saving features of virtualization to better meet the needs of its SAP customers. With a thorough understanding of virtualization technology coupled with SAP technical expertise, its experts have developed best-practice techniques to successfully architect SAP virtual storage infrastructures that can meet even the most rigid uptime and business continuity requirements.
