Computacenter operates all Koelnmesse central applications within a virtualised storage environment.
When its existing leasing and service contract expired in 2011, Koelnmesse was faced with the task of renewing its entire IT infrastructure from scratch. Around 630 employees and up to 600 freelance associates use this infrastructure, as well as up to 6,000 external trade fair workers in peak periods.
The private cloud at Computacenter enables us to make sure that all events go smoothly. We have a close, trusting relationship with Computacenter. It was therefore only logical that this partnership should continue over the next few years.Achim Stolzki, Central Division Manager IT, Koelnmesse
