With new hyperconverged and VDI solutions, the HPE ProLiant will improve productivity, provide a strong foundation for innovation and increase energy efficiency
Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced yesterday that Chemist Warehouse, a pharmacy powerhouse with over 400 locations, has chosen HPE to modernise its data centre with a hyperconverged platform and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment to improve onsite and remote staff productivity, provide a strong foundation for innovation, and improve energy efficiency. The new solutions will be offered using HPE ProLiant servers, which are high-performing and adaptable.
Chemist Warehouse wants to completely restructure its data centre in order to optimise operations for improved sales and customer experiences, as well as respond to recent trends to remote working environments.
Chemist Warehouse obtains foundational support for future solutions to increase automation and sustainability efforts by collaboration with HPE to design a bespoke VDI solution utilising HPE ProLiant servers.
“Our commitment to modernizing our IT is critical for us to achieve our transformation goals and continued growth. With reduced administrative overheads, we can reallocate resources to innovation,” said Simon Hibbert, General Manager of IT at Chemist Warehouse. “The initial beneficiaries will be our staff, which will experience improved productivity and in return, will have a positive, downstream impact to our customers in-store and online.”
HPE is helping Chemist Warehouse transform its IT with an infrastructure environment delivered through HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 Plus servers using 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors that take advantage of the latest VMware vSAN all-flash capabilities for a software-defined experience.
The upgraded data center will also increase energy efficiency by consuming 30% less power than its existing solution, helping to advance Chemist Warehouse’s sustainability goals.
“We look forward to accelerating our collaboration with Chemist Warehouse to increase efficiency and build a foundation for future growth,” said Andrew Foot, General Manager of Compute for HPE South Pacific. “The new environment, enabled by HPE ProLiant servers, will deliver better performance, energy efficiency, user experience and lower latency.”
The current solution is for core systems for the Chemist Warehouse Australia operation.
