IBM Showcase Triton's Work with DB2 Customer Holiday Extras
December 22nd, 2011

IBM have produced a case study looking at DB2 customer, Holiday Extras, and how Triton Consulting have helped them to move to a virtualised environment and upgrade to DB2 9.7.

Reducing total cost of ownership for IT continues to be a goal across businesses today, and Holiday Extras is no exception. Recently, Holiday Extras turned to IBM Business Partner Triton Consulting to help virtualize its IT infrastructure and upgrade to DB2 9.7. Triton Consulting has worked with Holiday Extras for over four years and is a leading provider of information management experts in the U.K. in the field of DB2 consultancy, database and information management.

"Our partnership with Triton is valuable in a number of ways," says Philip Carrington, Senior DBA. "For example, they provide remote DBA support over the weekends so we can make sure someone is always on call. Triton provides an exemplary DB2 technical staff, experienced in working with many customers. They bring that knowledge into our discussions, and we have learned so much from them over the years."

The move to DB2 9.7 made it possible to take advantage of IBM's data compression and storage optimization capabilities, reducing the company's database to one-sixth its original size. These capabilities are helping reduce disk space and storage infrastructure requirements, while boosting performance.
