Zentyal, developer of easy IT solutions for small business, announced today that the Zentyal Server has been adopted by Simply Supermarkets as the retailer’s IT network upgrade, to deliver increased robustness and security. The Zentyal solution has been deployed in order to grant service to over 18.000 devices, in 226 shops located in 11 Spanish regions.

As a consequence of the company’s growth over the last few years, Simply Supermarkets needed to scale up its network infrastructure’s capacity. Zentyal Server integrates three networks: for secure credit card payments, for general operations, and a third for testing and development.

The retailer opted for Zentyal Server after discarding options that require a significant investment in software licenses or hardware. The easy-to-use web interface and Zentyal Server’s open architecture were key factors when reaching a final decision. “After considering several other solutions, our conclusion was that none of them were comparable to Zentyal’s technology platform”, said Luis Palomero, CTO at Sabeco-Simply.

Zentyal Server’s simple and powerful administrative web interface increases IT staff efficiency and reduces configuration errors. Zentyal Server’s architecture allows the automation of the most common system administration tasks. All these factors amount to significant savings in terms of time and resources for Simply Supermarkets.

Deploying Zentyal Server is a straightforward process
– users can continue working without disruption, and the migration process is transparent. “No one in the company had their work interrupted by the migration process. Being able to rely on a service that works 100% of the time is very valuable for an IT Manager”, adds Palomero.
