Giant Eagle Migrating IT Infrastructure to Cloud

Giant Eagle has begun overhauling its IT infrastructure with a hybrid cloud solution.

The new solution, based on IBM Cloud’s Infrastructure as a Service, SoftLayer, is designed to provide Giant Eagle with flexible, consumption-based pricing, as well as faster procurement and provisioning of applications, and integrated system management for greater visibility into data from everything from the supply chain to the checkout line.

The retailer is currently in phase one of its rollout, which includes the deployment of the development/test and disaster recovery environments. Phase two will include migrating its production IT operations to IBM.

“Our goals to reposition our technology infrastructure were to achieve the scalability, security, reliability, resiliency and efficiency that the advancements in the technology are making possible without making significant capital investments,” said Jeremy Gill, senior director of Technology Infrastructure at Giant Eagle, a privately-held operator of more than 420 multi-format stores in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland and Indiana.
