Established in1989, SPAR Magyarország (SPAR Hungary) operates 389 stores, as well as two logistics centers. There is a continuous flow of data between these locations relating to sales, inventory, delivery, warehouse, transportation, and purchasing. This data is mission-critical.
SPAR IT is tasked with keeping this data secure and available 24/7, 365 days a year. The IT infrastructure behind it must be high performing, highly reliable, and compatible with both internal and external IT systems. SPAR IT is continuously assessing the latest technologies available so that it meets these objectives while keeping costs as low as possible.
Together with Intel, SPAR IT consolidated and refreshed its data center infrastructure. It rolled out HP ProLiant* DL 980 G7 servers running Intel® Xeon® processors E7 family and a Red Hat Linux* operating system. Intel® AES New Instructions, and Intel® Trusted Execution Technology offer advanced data protection without compromising on performance, while Intel® QuickPath Interconnect minimizes data traffic queues. For example, Machine Check Architecture Recovery enables OS-assisted system recovery.
