It was essential to Delhaize that its IT infrastructure would be able to go to the next level. It was not only crucial to improve IT services today, but to future proof and have the ability to support new edge-based applications with hyperconverged technology.
With its small margins, the supermarket industry benefits greatly from a cost-efficient edge platform, especially if this approach also makes new developments such as ‘real-time retail’ possible. Hyperconvergence at the edge allows compute workloads to be run in a small or tiny hardware footprint, processing and reducing vast quantities of data for further upload to either a centralized data center or the cloud.
