Petbarn has 72 huge retail stores located across Australia. Petbarn sells one of the biggest ranges of dry, wet, fresh and frozen pet food in Australia, as well as a huge range of veterinary products, flea and tick products, pet accessories, beds, baths, bones, toys, kennels, bird cages, aquariums and pet accessories. ITConsult worked with Petbarn to implement a full virtualisation and data centre refresh project including server, storage and desktop virtualisation utilising some of the industry’s best technologies. The new systems were backed up with a Quorum onQ disaster recovery and business continuity appliance.
Cost savings are the end result of this combination of technology. Storage efficiency, automation, simplified management and reductions in power and cooling all combine to save money moving forwards, and at the end of the day that’s a real benefit we all want.
