large scale DR

Their situation

From its base in Quito, Ecuador, Superdeporte Cia Ltda distributes and retails sports brands, including Nike, Puma , Adidas and Reebok, throughout Ecuador. With over 150 stores, they are the largest sports retailer in Ecuador, and amongst the largest sporting goods chains in South America. Under their commercial brand, Marathon Sports, they are a major sponsor of the Ecuadorian, Peruvian and Bolivian national football teams.

One of Superdeporte’s requirements for their new Point of Sale solution, that was to be installed in their 150+ stores, was that it be disaster resilient. Superdeporte’s IT provider, Renovation IT, needed an architecture that ensured individual stores could recover their sales data in the event of any disaster.
