ROLF Group signs with HP to move technology infrastructure into the Cloud

27 Sep 2011 Moscow - ZAO Hewlett-Packard AO has signed an agreement with ROLF Group, a Russian importer and retailer of cars, to migrate ROLF's information technology (IT) and applications infrastructure to an HP Cloud environment, enabling greater flexibility and aligning IT costs with business needs.

Migrating ROLF's IT and applications infrastructure to a utility-based, private Cloud-computing environment will give ROLF's IT staff more flexibility in managing the company's technology infrastructure. Operating in a Cloud environment also will allow staff to rapidly scale IT services up and down to meet changing business needs. ROLF expects the move to result in substantial economic benefits, including the complete elimination of data centre maintenance costs.

"In the retail world, it's critical to align business needs and IT capabilities to ensure our customers have what they need delivered with the best service", stated Artem Pletnev, IT operation director, ROLF Group. "HP's comprehensive Cloud solutions, paired with its rich experience implementing in complex business settings across multiple industries, give us confidence this solution will meet our future requirements for the best price and performance."

HP will deliver Utility Services supporting ROLF's migration to a private Cloud- and utility-based computing environment, giving the company access to next-generation technology with priority-based computing capacity, data storage and back-up levels to meet its needs with minimal cost and environmental impact.

As a part of the agreement, HP will transition all of ROLF's e-mail system and support for enterprise business applications - including its enterprise resource planning, corporate portals and e-mail - to a private Cloud.

ROLF will use multiple types and combinations of HP Cloud services based on its needs. ROLF also will have access to HP's enterprise Cloud computing services as a foundation for implementing a more comprehensive Cloud strategy in the future.

HP will provide private Cloud computing services from Germany. ROLF also will benefit from remote data centre support delivered from HP Best Shore global delivery centers in Central and Eastern Europe.

"Technology is the great enabler for retailers to connect with today's consumers, who expect instant access", stated Vladimir Zaitsev, manager, HP Enterprise Services, Russia. "HP will provide modern, cost-effective technologies delivered by a deeply experienced team to help ensure ROLF is able to focus on serving customers and expanding its business."

HP is helping ROLF Group in its journey to become an Instant-On Enterprise. The Instant-On Enterprise embeds technology in everything it does to serve customers, employees, partners and citizens with whatever they need, instantly.
