Global Semiconductor Equipment Manufacturer Powers Faster Engineering Collaboration with Nasuni & Teamcenter

AIXTRON adopts a more agile, scalable, and cost-effective cloud infrastructure worldwide

Headquartered in Germany, AIXTRON is a leading provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry. The firm has eight locations around the world, and its partner company, APEVA, has another three sites in Korea and Germany. Like many other manufacturers, AIXTRON’s file data had been growing too fast for traditional NAS file servers, and the company was struggling to share files between distributed engineering teams around the world. “Let’s say we had a 3D model of one of our tools stored in Germany,” says CIO Olaf Rupprecht. “If a system engineer in the US wanted to open a complete 3D model, it would take three, four, or even five hours just to get this open.” With Nasuni, AIXTRON was able to consolidate its islands of storage and data protection into a single cloud platform, accelerate workflows, minimize engineering downtime, and boost file access performance by 5x to 10x.
