Overview

Successful Irish e-commerce company MicksGarage.com needed a cloud partner it could depend on to support its ambitious plans for expansion across Europe.

With more than 6.5 million product listings on o er and customers needing their spare parts urgently, MicksGarage.com is heavily dependent on its IT infrastructure to manage the complex logistics operation. Working with Sungard Availability Services, it pursued a resilient, multi-tenant cloud solution that would give it the high availability and scalability the company needs.

About MicksGarage.com

Award-winning online car parts supplier MicksGarage.com is as much about technology as the spare parts it sells, its success hinging on the speed and reliability of its IT infrastructure and streamlined business processes. Operating in a fiercely competitive market, the Dublin-based firm has grown over the past decade to become an €11 million turnover company employing 48 people at its 40,000 sq ft premises.

Availability is absolutely critical to us. If a customer finds the website down they may never come back, being down for even a minute would cost us hundreds of euros – an hour would run to thousands – and that’s without the knock to our reputation.
