With leading technology, high-quality components and a full range of services, Burckhardt Compression supports its customers around the world in their efforts to minimise the life-cycle costs of their reciprocating compressor systems. The design and continuous adaptation of database systems in line with changing business requirements calls for long-standing, in-depth expertise. Burckhardt Compression found this in Trivadis and in 2012 commissioned the IT service provider with various projects in the Oracle and Microsoft SQL database environment. This collaboration resulted in a long-standing partnership in which Trivadis assumes a significant portion of the tasks for the operation, support and maintenance of more than 50 database instances.
Trivadis ensures the smooth operation of more than 50 database instances of various criticality levels on the basis of a flexible SLA. For critical systems, support is provided on a 24/7 basis, while less critical systems are dealt with during office hours. Continuous monitoring of the systems enables problems to be detected early and critical events to be prevented. A support and maintenance team tailored to the customer not only ensures the completion of event-driven tasks but also the continuous optimisation of the database systems. This greatly eases the strain on the Burckhardt Compression’s IT organisation and significantly reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO).
With Trivadis as a managed services partner, we ensure the smooth operation and further development of our database systems. As a result, we are not only able to reduce costs, but also significantly relieve the strain on our company’s IT organisation.

Alongside Trivadis’ specialist and service expertise, the modular SLA model that can be optimised for individual requirements forms the basis for successful cooperation. As part of this SLA, Trivadis has been ensuring the operation of the database systems (Oracle and Microsoft SQL) in line with the business criticality of the applications for a number of years.
