Casino entrusts APL with the upgrade of a 1000 m² active data center

The Casino Group's IT production is hosted at two sites: “R” and “NoSICA”. In 2012, Casino commissioned APL to evaluate the feasibility of extending site R's service life a further 5 years. The data center had been in use for 20 years, and some of its hardware was becoming obsolete.
Upon completion of the study, APL's budgetary evaluations and recommendations were approved by Casino, which chose APL to manage the upgrades.

  • Monitoring of technical execution, all trades covered
  • Assistance with the acceptance stage

Client benefits

  • Schedules tailored to the operators’ needs (critical days and hours)
  • Service levels restored by refurbishing existing equipment and adding new hardware
  • Simple, cost-efficient maintenance may once again be performed on the site
