Carhartt saves money and improves performance by upgrading SAP system to IBM POWER8 and new all-flash storage.

With Carhartt’s infrastructure growing faster than planned due to placing a higher priority on business analytics and processes, the business needed to increase system capacity and performance while justifying cost.

Running several SAP applications, IBM WebSphere Application Server, IBM WebSphere Commerce and others, Carhartt partnered with Mainline to consolidate its backup, development and testing servers, and upgrade its production system – without breaking the bank.

“We were able to go to advanced flash storage, an advanced server environment and more capacity, and our annual operating costs actually decreased. This is a testament to everyone involved, including Mike (Karasienski), Chris (Walker), our management team, the IT staff and Mainline. I’ve never seen a migration happen that quickly and smoothly before.”
