The Project

Powerful databases are critical to the business

Kostal is now represented at more than 46 locations in 20 countries and therefore relies on efficient and global database management. In addition, the different time zones demand round-the-clock support to minimise downtime and ensure consistent data backup. 24/7 support and maintenance as well as the prompt implementation of new updates, enhancements and security-relevant patches are therefore critical for the company.

Global time zones demand 24/7 support to minimise downtime and ensure consistent data security.


Challenge & Implementation

Global 24/7 support and maintenance by COCUS

Especially for companies that, like Kostal, operate globally, all database applications must work reliably and uniformly. This is ensured by a MySQL maintenance package tailored to Kostal’s individual needs, including support and training. The 24/7 remote service includes 2nd level support for
the databases, high performance, high availability and backup solutions. In addition, COCUS is the central contact for updates and extensions of the MySQL Line Controlling solution.
However, should failures occur, COCUS also supports critical emergency operations to restore defective infrastructures and databases, including customised replication and failover procedures.

In order to enable Kostal to start production in the shortest possible time, even at new locations, COCUS takes over the training and familiarisation of new employees through a variety of training courses and workshops.
