REI uses automation to rapidly respond to changing business needs

REI’s IT leadership advanced their systems to heightened automation, which allowed the Seattle-based merchandiser to turn on a dime and devote much more of its private cloud to the new e-commerce workload demands.

 

Challenge

Like many retailers, Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI) was faced with drastic and rapid change when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. REI’s marketing leaders wanted to make sure that their online e-commerce capabilities would rise to the challenge.

Solution

REI used HPE OneView software defined automation to manage HPE Synergy infrastructure and use the open API to integrate with Ansible.

"As a result of our fully automated process, using Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) OneView and Synergy, we were able to reallocate our compute hosts in 18 minutes, all at once. And that was done using single touch, launching the automation and then pulling them from one cluster and decommissioning them and placing them all the way into the digital retail clusters."

Bryan Sullins, Senior Cloud Systems Engineer at REI in Seattle

Result

The fully-automated HPE hosts (from bare metal to production-ready) took under 18 minutes using HPE OneView.
