Infrastructure makeover improves reporting speed and performance

Pro-Duo, an international retailer and distributor of professional beauty supplies, selected Proact to update the IT infrastructure at its European headquarters in Ghent. The aim of this project was to improve performance and reduce management costs, while also ensuring service availability across the company’s 200 stores.

Challenge

Pro-Duo is largely dependent on the storage environment at its Ghent headquarters so when this platform became outdated, the company went looking for a more modern replacement. Better performance was on top of the beauty supplier’s wish list as a fast system is essential for the firm’s developers to test new innovations.

Solution

Designed using all-flash technology from Pure Storage, Proact helped Pro-Duo migrate to the new storage platform. Now, Pro-Duo benefits from better performance and simplified management. Furthermore, the company is able to generate business reports faster. The new environment is fully redundant meaning that in the case of failure, any issues can immediately be remediated.

”Proact immediately offered us an implementation plan which included all the steps that had to be taken – this was really convenient for us.”
