Gymboree has migrated from disparate, physical storage systems to an enterprise cloud platform to reduce operating costs, eliminate over-provisioning, and improve performance with a smaller data center footprint.
After implementing Tintri, Gymboree reduced its storage management time to zero from 10 to 12 hours per week.
“All of our POS infrastructure, human resources applications and practically every user interface was utilizing VMware at some level,” said Jessie LaCome, Windows and virtualization IT lead for Gymboree, in a statement. “In total, we have approximately 1,000 end users, and a large number of them were complaining about poor application performance issues. We were also seeing a lot of backup and snapshot problems and huge connectivity issues.”
LaCome noted that he can fit the company’s entire data center — including all of its Cisco UCS infrastructure and the Tintri device — into a single rack, so the center takes up minimal space.
