Cdiscount is the second largest online retailer in Europe, serving 8.6 million active customers via its state-of-the-art online marketplace, which offers products from more than 10,000 partner merchants. Looking to expand their ecommerce market while staying customer-relevant, Cdiscount needed a way to facilitate faster deployment and reduce the workload of IT staff to maintain their constantly evolving matrix of products, images, events, and transactions.
We must deploy new products and services every day, we must facilitate the company’s expansion into new markets, and we must deliver the same level of service as a cloud provider, but at a lower cost. The combination of Cisco ACI and Nexus 9000 is helping us on all of those fronts.”
“Cisco ACI is a much simpler architecture. We can define network, application, and security policies from a central console and then push them to both of our data centers with an API request. As a result, our configurations are more standardized and secure, and making changes to the environment is much faster and easier.”
