At Wolfgang Denzel Auto AG, we replaced the storage systems at four data center locations. The existing systems from EMC (VNX) and IBM (DS4700) were replaced by HPE 3 PAR storage systems. In addition, the availability of the IT systems has improved significantly through the use of storage replication technologies.


  • Hardware: HPE 3PAR 8200 storage systems with SSD- and SAS disks
  • Software: HPE 3PAR Replication Suite and HPE 3PAR Security Suite
  • Services: planning, design and implementation, training and maintenance

Customer Statement

"Enhanced IT security"

"This way, we optimize all service, repair and advisory processes for our customers and achieve an excellent on-time performance.

In recent years, we focused on enhancing IT security. This project took us one further step in this direction and we have decided on a disaster recovery concept which guarantees almost 100% availability. Of course, this also involves adequate investments.

We would like to emphasize that the consultation phase and the project implementation were carried out very professionally. We have implemented a unified server and storage platform with just one contact partner - we previously had to coordinate three manufacturers. Last but not least, the personal support which we live by with professional expertise and dedication, here at DENZEL, as with Axians."
