By relying on NetApp technologies, Carrefour is switching from on-premise to the cloud, mainly from Google, to dye its data centers.
As part of the Carrefour 2022 transformation plan, since 2018 the distribution group has been carrying out a vast migration plan to the public cloud, in this case mainly Google Cloud Platform with some additions from Microsoft Azure (such as collaborative office automation). “Our CEO asked that we be 100% cloud in 2026” said François-Xavier Delmaire, director of build to cloud of Carrefour. He testified at the invitation of NetApp. It should be noted that the decentralized IT present in the store (such as the cash register system) is not (at least for the time being) concerned by this 100% cloud approach because its resilience without any disruption, even in the event of a network failure, is vital.
