Anyone with knowledge of chain saws is well aware of the name STIHL. Since 1971, STIHL has been the best-selling chainsaw brand in the world. STIHL is also the market leader in Switzerland. In order to make sure this remains so in the future, STIHL Chain Works Switzerland has transformed their datacenter with UMB. Today, the company possesses a high-performance, agile data center platform meeting the most demanding availability requirements. 

In 1926, company founder Andreas Stihl developed his first chain saw. His motivation: "To make it easier for people to work with and in nature". Indeed, STIHL equipment today makes work easier than any other gear. Likewise, UMB's specialists have made the migration of STIHL's IT infrastructure easier, thus assisting STIHL in their technology transformation.

UMB transforms the data center in time and on budget 

STIHL Chain Works Switzerland assigned the technical migration of the data centers to UMB. With its leading edge technology competence, UMB has taken care of the installation, commissioning, migration of all components and systems as well as the acceptance tests. The new Hitachi storage environment for STIHL is entirely designed as an "always-on" data center platform providing high availability, outstanding performance, maximum reliability, as well as simple and efficient operation.
