Thumb original amadeus case study

Amadeus, the travel reservation system leader in Europe founded by Lufthansa, Air France, Iberia and SAS, has two main data centers in Munich, Germany, each totaling over 1,000 square meters, as well as a disaster recovery site and six computer rooms in Erding, Germany. Amadeus was installing 1,500 servers and removing 500-600 servers across 1,000 racks each year. The company’s data centers have not materially changed since they were built in the 1980s. According to the hardware planning team, the Amadeus data center environment was running out of space, making it increasingly difficult to install additional hardware. The team’s challenge was threefold—to avoid building a new data center, to save costs in power and cooling, and to identify a tool that could make the most of their current infrastructure.

“With the help of Nlyte, we could better allocate our power racks, raise the inlet temperatures on our racks from 17 degrees (Celsius) to 20 degrees, saving €500,000 per year. The hardware planning team earned the ‘Amadeus Excellence Award’ for the project.” Christian Kaess
