Trent retail leverages IZO™ Private Cloud to fuel aggressive borderless growth


Trent Case Study

Trent Retail, operating 130 outlets across India, by the brand name Westside, is one of the largest and fastest growing retail chains in India, specialising in designer fashion wear, accessories, furniture and home furnishings.


With new stores sprawling up across India, its resource-constrained on-premise data centre was failing to keep pace. That’s when the company needed a way to grow their IT which could keep pace with business, yet contain costs, as retail margins are highly competitive.



  • Rapid scale-up to accommodate fast growing data and applications
  • Flexibility to support traffic spikes during discount sales, festival and holiday seasons
  • High security as automation and applications involve critical data
  • Controlled cost of ownership and maintenance



  • IZOTM Private Cloud to host its very critical workloads, enabling high performance, security and instant scale-up
  • Secure high-speed IP and VPN connectivity links between sites and data centre to enable speedy data archive, billing and other applications
  • Real-time back-up services to cover any rare data failover incident
  • 24/7 maintenance and support



  • A secure private environment with high performance and availability guarantee of 99.9% significantly increased its application performance and efficiency
  • Agility to spin up resources instantly with addition of new outlets and exponentially growing data
  • On-demand resources, just a call away, to scale effortlessly during seasonal traffic spikes
  • Quick billing, data archive and automated applications enable enhanced customer shopping experience
  • Zero CapEx and substantial OpEx savings owing to the pay-as-you-go pricing model


“IT agility is pivotal to sustain an ambitious countrywide retail growth plan. IZOTM Private Cloud provided the elasticity to instantly stretch and add up new storage and compute resources, as we aggressively added more than 30 outlets across the country recently.”
