"Convenience stores have evolved from 'gas and snack' stops to
sophisticated retail outlets," said Woodard. "To meet customers'
increasing expectations for data-intensive applications, C-stores need
sophisticated, easy-to-use technology solutions. We're excited to be
collaborating with HPE and Zynsta to deliver a groundbreaking solution
that gives C-store IT teams the flexibility to update all the different
technology appliances in a C-store with a single server - one that is
easy to install, saves space and reduces their IT costs."
As a result of a close working relationship and global agreement with
HPE, Zynstra's virtualization and cloud management software is packaged
by HPE as a key part of its new ProLiant Easy Connect portfolio.
HPE ProLiant Easy Connect offers C-stores a number of benefits:
Enhanced PCI (News - Alert)-DSS compliance
Automated provisioning, patching and configuration of all C-store sites
Ability to roll out new stores quickly and efficiently
