Círculo K Mexico, a subsidiary of one of the world’s largest convenience store chains, has selected IBM PureSystems to upgrade and consolidate its IT infrastructure, IBM reports.
Using PureFlex, Círculo K Mexico will also create a high-availability backup system that can speed recovery times and reduce critical application failures by up to 90 percent. In fact, during the months since deploying the new system, Círculo K has been able to reduce the time required to install and upgrade applications on servers from three months to 30 minutes.
"The most attractive differentiator for Círculo K was the innovative technology found within PureFlex," notes Carlos Guerrero, manager of Information Technology Infrastructure at Circle K Mexico. "These systems are fully integrated and contain a depth of experience and industry knowledge that only IBM has."
Working with IBM Business Partner Acceco, Círculo K replaced its existing Dell platforms and selected PureFlex over HP to provide the backbone for a new smarter computing infrastructure.
