dm-drogerie markt is Germany’s biggest drugstore chain with over 41,000 employees and more than 2,000 stores. dmTech, the IT subsidiary of dm-drogerie markt, is pursuing a hybrid multi-cloud strategy and is increasingly shifting IT workloads to different cloud platforms. As online business is growing in importance, the original method of enabling connection via VPN tunnels needed to be replaced by a better solution; one that guarantees stable, low-latency connectivity.
Build for the future
dmTech chose DE-CIX’s InterconnectionFLEX, a service designed specifically for enterprise customers, which made it easy for them to establish all required types of WAN connectivity on a single switched, redundant connection to DE-CIX, and to bundle them centrally. The flexibility of the service means that future connectivity requirements can also be implemented quickly.
