Description of the Solution

As agreed in their data center outsourcing contract, Comarch provides a cloud platform as a service (PaaS) to Schnellecke for critical business processes. The dedicated platform was designed to guarantee a high level of security and good value for money. In addition to the proven x86 and x64 architecture, the solution includes IBM Power Systems that are designed for the effective scaling of business-critical, data-intensive applications (such as Oracle databases).

The IT server infrastructure is operated in two separate Comarch data centers in different locations (Dresden and Kraków) according to the strictest European data protection regulations. This applies to the test environments and further server systems.

Comarch provides data center capacities, hardware, software, Internet connections, and managed services to operate, manage, and administer the critical SILENA and web portal applications. Thus, the efficiency of Schnellecke’s processes has increased significantly, while the risk of potential failures has been minimized. As a result, Schnellecke achieved the highest process efficiency for their customers in the automobile industry and simultaneously the best quality of their logistics services.
