Calumet Photographic GmbH, the specialist for everything a photographer´s heart treasures, is the best point of interest for all who value outstanding photographs – both in its 18 stores and in the internet on calumetphoto.de, calumetphoto.be, calumetphoto.nl and calphoto.co.uk.
Application Management of the Shop-Systems in the Cloud
The multi-country online shops of Calumet Photographic were realized on the basis of the Intershop Commerce Suite 7.2 and they are operated in the Amazon Cloud (AWS). In the course of relocating IT responsibility to Germany, they opted for the leading Amazon Cloud, which allows highly-flexible scaling as well as horizontal and vertical cloud infrastructure services.
Smart Commerce was commissioned with the application management of the shop system in the cloud. The aim was to maximize the automation of application management. In both automation and monitoring, current technology is used to ensure maximum transparency for the customer.
“We are glad about the confidence shown to us. During the go live of the Calumet sites, Intershop 7.2 was not optimized for the use in cloud environments. Several optimizations and tests needed to be conducted and experiences needed to be gained. Intershop made several improvements with the latest versions and now also includes “open stack”-based cloud management”, said Frank Schneider, Executive Board Member of Smart Commerce SE.
We are happy about the recognition and the economic eCommerce success of Calumet Photographic GmbH, our customer.
”Special emphasis should be placed on the flexibility and above all the reliability of Smart Commerce. We have a dedicated contact who knows our environment excellently and who can therefore support us quickly.”
Gunnar Asmussen, Head of eCommerce at Calumet.
