Application Management of the Shop System in the Cloud

The online shop was implemented based on the Intershop Commerce Suite 7.2 and is operated in the Amazon Cloud (AWS). As part of shifting IT responsibilities to Germany, the decision was made to utilize the readily available Amazon Cloud, which offers highly flexible scaling as well as horizontal and vertical cloud infrastructure services.

Smart Commerce was entrusted with the application management of the shop system in the cloud, with the goal of maximizing automation of the application management process.

Both automation and monitoring rely on cutting-edge technology to ensure the highest possible transparency for the customer.


Cloud Management

"We are pleased to have gained this trust. Intershop 7.2 was not optimized for use in cloud environments when the Calumet sites went live. Therefore, several optimizations and tests had to be carried out, and experiences had to be gained. Intershop has made improvements with the latest versions, delivering significant enhancements, including the 'Openstack'-based cloud management," said Frank Schneider, Executive Board member of Smart Commerce SE.

We are delighted with the recognition and the economic eCommerce success of Calumet Photographic GmbH, our customer.
