About the Würth Group

The Würth Group is a worldwide wholesaler of manufacturing components, composed of 400 companies in 86 countries and employs over 65,000 people. Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG is the largest individual company in the globally active Würth Group.  COMPAREX configured new storage systems for Adolf Würth, integrating them into the existing environment. This project included storage area network (SAN) and storage management, as well as data migration in two countries.

  • Würth had already been relying on COMPAREX‘s expertise for years in providing customized solutions for its IT environment. This was also the case when designing and implementing a new high availability storage infrastructure in Künzelsau, Germany and Chur, Switzerland. Along with a modernized storage area network (SAN) at both locations and backup and recovery functionality at the German headquarters, it was anticipated that this infrastructure would cover all throughput and capacity requirements securely and scalably. Such flexibility is important for a company with extremely high data throughput.

  • A comprehensive analysis by COMPAREX revealed that the customer’s requirements would be met most effectively using the Hitachi Data System Virtual Storage Platform (HDS VSP). These systems provide the required scalability as well as the flexibility for a dynamic company with extremely high data throughput.

    Data migration was also a key factor in the new storage design in two respects: All data had to be absolutely secure during the migration, and daily operations had to be left unaffected if at all possible. This objective was accomplished in two ways. The migration of the Windows systems was carried out using the HDS VSP virtualization tools. The data could thus be transferred more or less ‘in the background’ without diminishing IT performance.

  • “What is true for technology is also true for data migration: It’s perfect if nobody notices anything. This was the case for our project, thanks to COMPAREX’s excellent preparation and timely execution in every respect. The modernization and migration of the storage environment at two locations was carried out without interrupting the applications. Our company now benefits from the guaranteed flexibility of a storage-on-demand design,” says Harald Holl, Manager Systems Technology, Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG
