ADVA Optical Networking Technology Plays Key Role in Business Continuity
Martinsried/Munich, Germany. January 15, 2014. ADVA Optical Networking announced
today that dm Drugstore Corporation is using the ADVA FSPÂ 3000 to transport
mission-critical information between its data centers. With approximately
50,000 employees and revenues in excess of 7.6 billion Euros in the 2012/2013
fiscal year, it's vital that dm Drugstore Corporation has the most robust and
secure IT infrastructure available. FILIADATA, the IT subsidiary of dm Drugstore
Corporation, operates several business continuity and high-availability
solutions, including a high-end IBM Parallel Sysplex environment. The backbone
of this environment is an optical transmission solution based on the ADVA
FSPÂ 3000, which has recently been installed in cooperation with FILIADATA's
long-standing partner, TelemaxX.
"Trust is a quality that our team values. It's something that we build into
everything we do. Not just in our technology but in our every action," said Uli
Schlegel, business development, SAN Solutions, ADVA Optical Networking. "When
you're dealing with your customers' mission-critical data, with their
reputation, with their business, you know that there cannot be any mistakes, any
missed steps. This is part of the reason why we're helping dm Drugstore
Corporation with its IBM mainframe Parallel Sysplex connectivity. They know our
technology's reputation, they know what our team is capable of. As with all of
our customers, they trust us. They know their data and their business is safe."
Deployed by many of the Fortune 500 companies, geographically dispersed and
redundant IBM mainframes provide high-end business continuity applications for
uninterrupted application uptime. This continuous uptime is critical for
organizations that require their business applications to be always on and data
to be available every second of every day. The ADVA FSP 3000 has a long history
of being used within this specific data center environment. ADVA Optical
Networking has worked closely with IBM for more than a decade to ensure that its
technology meets IBM's exacting standards and rigorous qualification programs.
This close interworking relationship between the two companies was one of the
principal reasons that dm Drugstore Corporation chose the ADVA FSP 3000.
"As a partner for network and communication solutions, we've built a strong
relationship with the dm Drugstore Corporation. We've helped them to develop a
network capable of meeting their customers' demands, of meeting their own
business expectations," commented Stephan Sluzewski, technical manager,
TelemaxX. "When FILIADATA discussed the need to connect IBM mainframes in a
Parallel Sysplex over more than 10 kilometers, there was only one clear option.
The ADVA FSPÂ 3000 is the perfect fit for the data center environment. The
superior functionality combined with the extensive IBM test and qualification
program provides our customers with the most secure data transport that we've
ever encountered. What's more, the ADVA Optical Networking team provides a level
of support that is simply unheralded in the industry. This is a package that was
tailor-made for dm Drugstore Corporation."
