Australian-based retailer coles was challenged with an ageing, in-store fleet of server hardware that resulted in lengthy server outages that disrupted store operations. coles decided to implement a virtualisation solution built on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Enterprise with Hyper-V technology. It also implemented Microsoft System Center solutions so that it could centrally manage its geographically dispersed infrastructure. Now, coles has the highly available infrastructure that it needs to keep store operations running. The IT team can quickly respond to changing business needs, recover servers in seconds, and control costs—without interrupting service to store personnel and customers.
