OfficeMax Sticks with Solaris Sparc servers for SAP ERP

Sun Microsystems has let out a sigh of relief because office products distributor OfficeMax has decided to stick with the Solaris platform as the core of its data center.

By CBR Staff Writer

OfficeMax sells office supplies and furniture and has a network of Sun Fire 25000 and 1280 servers, which have been upgraded to dual-core UltraSparc-IV processors and StorEdge 9960 disk arrays hosting the SAP installation that runs on this iron and runs its 950 stores and 50 distribution centers in the US and also hosts its online store.

OfficeMax has worked with Sun in its iForce Competency Center for SAP Solutions to tweak its implementation of SAP to help it run more smoothly, and it plans to work with Sun to use grid and virtualization technologies, collectively called N1, to make its SAP implementation more flexible in the future.
