55 Locations, One File Services Platform, No Backup: Why Pernod Ricard Western Europe Moved its Files to the Cloud with Nasuni®

Transitioning to cloud file storage minimizes downtime and more

The spirits conglomerate Pernod Ricard includes some of the biggest names in the liquor business. Absolut Vodka, Jameson Irish Whiskey, and Havana Club are just a few of its internationally known brands. The company has 85 affiliates, or locations, worldwide, including 55 in the EMEA region, and 18,000 global employees. A business mandate to drastically improve Pernod Ricard Deutschland’s recovery times sent Infrastructure Manager Western Europe Holger Marks of Pernod Ricard searching for a better way to store and protect his company’s files. The company had already moved most of its data and applications to the cloud, but files had proven more challenging. “The file server was the last piece we had on-premises,” says Marks. “We needed to find a solution for bringing this to the cloud.” Once he began evaluating Nasuni, Marks recognized a platform designed to satisfy his requirements and consolidate 55 offices under one cloud platform.
