Proact IT Group: Gant gains more efficient IT operations with solution from Proact

Proact has delivered a high availability, redundant and easier to
manage solution to clothing brand Gant, with data centres in four
countries.

The international clothing brand Gant has updated its IT
infrastructure with support from Proact. Gant, with its corporate
headquarters and enterprise IT management in Sweden, had previously
implemented a virtualised environment in its data centres, using
VMware software platforms. The company has recently taken this
initiative one step further by updating IT infrastructure with
Proact's assistance, complemented by consulting and support services.

"We now operate a fully redundant environment, which delivers higher
system availability and makes our business operations less
vulnerable," says Kenneth Karlsson, Global IT Infrastructure Manager
at Gant. "The new infrastructure is also easier to manage, supporting
our efforts for more efficient IT operations."

Gant operates its own data centres in three European countries and in
the United States, all of which have implemented the new solution. In
the UK, a new converged solution has been installed to replace the
entirety of the former systems environment, including servers,
storage and networking. Gant has also deployed a new backup solution
using snapshot technology, and backup management has been centralised
to Sweden.

"We have a long-term relationship with Gant, a company with a
well-designed strategy to actively engage inhouse IT resources and
skills to develop its business," says Lena Eskilsson, Managing
Director Proact IT Sweden AB. "Gant has demonstrated how an
international enterprise can successfully build and manage a
high-performance, state-of-the-art IT infrastructure."
