HPE SimpliVity success at the heart of Arena Hospitality Group in Central Europe
Any IT disruption can compromise service quality guests have come to expect
Darko Jakšeković from the Arena Hospitality Group recently talked about their experience integrating HPE SimpliVity into their critical IT systems in a case study commissioned by Hewlett Packard Enterprise. The project was carried out through cooperation between the local office of Hewlett Packard Enterprise operated by Selectium and local system integrator Integra Group.
Arena Hospitality Group has a wide range of properties across Central and Eastern Europe. Like many companies around the world involved in hospitality, IT systems must be of the highest quality as any failures immediately compromise service quality.
Arena operates across Germany, Hungary, and Croatia and is now expanding into Serbia. Up to now, their systems across the sites were not integrated, and management of data across the sites was labour intensive and had many points of failure. Virtualization was the next step, but for various reasons, the project to do this was repeatedly delayed.
To get to grips with the situation, a search was begun to consolidate their multinational infrastructure using technology centralized management, integrated backup and DR, with easier management and better performance. After careful consideration, the team chose HPE SimpliVity, replacing their existing HPE Generation 7, 8, and 9 servers, and other legacy solutions.
