Case Study: Kingfisher IT Prefers to Replicate in the Hypervisor
Kingfisher plc is Europe’s largest home improvement retail group and the third largest in the world, with 988 stores in eight countries in Europe and Asia. KingFisher’s IT Services (KITs) provides IT services centrally, enabling consistent and accessible support for all stores and corporate departments. To continue to improve on the ROI of their IT infrastructure, they implemented virtualization to increase flexibility and reduce costs. Once this infrastructure was in place, Kingfisher needed a BC/DR solution to ensure uptime of their business critical operations.
KITs explored many tools to protect their virtualized infrastructure. For instance, KITs evaluated a popular orchestration tool used together with array-based replication. Unfortunately, Kingfisher was still unable to get the agility and flexibility that they needed with array-based solutions.

Quotes from the Case Study:
- “A traditional, physical solution was not meeting our needs. Zerto not only met our requirements, it exceeded expectations.”
- “With Zerto, not only is the process efficient, it is so simple.”
- “We just select the virtual machines and migrate them over. This could have taken us months using a traditional solution.”
