Maximum Data Security Owing to plusserver
BayWa AG opted for Germany's leading multi-cloud data service provider to host its portals for building materials and agricultural trade. plusserver's private cloud guarantees maximum security and excellent GDPR compliance. As a result of the fixed prices of the private cloud, BayWa also benefits from cost transparency and stability.
Multi-Faceted E-Commerce with Cloud Services
The system architecture in the cloud is geared towards the structures of BayWa AG's e-commerce platform. To ensure the best possible service and future viability, BayWa built individual e-commerce pillars for the various business units. On account of this intelligent system architecture, the Agriculture, Building Materials and Energy business units are technically independent of each other; however, they are still visually united.
Modular System Architecture
To take advantage of synergy effects, the hosting was initially designed for the Building Materials business unit, then for the Agriculture business unit. The following three main components ensure smooth operation: a fail-safe live system, an acceptance system and a developer system for feature development.
- Concept creation and implementation of tailor-made cloud strategies
- Optimal hosting with an intelligent system architecture
- Transparency and stability of costs owing to fixed prices of the private cloud
- Great flexibility within virtualisation
- plusserver's data centres ensure maximum security and GDPR compliance
