Sportium, the flagship bookmaker property of Spanish gambling conglomerate Grupo CIRSA, has completed a network securities upgrade led by multinational IT infrastructure and engineering group Dell EMC.
The project saw Sportium revamp its entire IT securities infrastructure operating across its network of 3,000 retail betting points servicing +8,000 wagering terminals.
Sportium’s systems upgrade was led by Dell EMC’s technology security division ‘ABAST’, which saw the deployment of new ‘VMware suite’ (cloud-based) security provisions for data and domain protections.
Deploying ABAST network solutions, Sportium will benefit from multiple security and operational benefits, as the Spanish bookmaker’s network is secured by a flexible cloud back-up storage capacity and a centralized management system monitoring ‘at source’ data transactions.
Further holistic benefits should see Sportium improve its group-wide data processing capacity and secure a ‘notable reduction’ in RTO recovery time objectives, lowering long-term IT and computing costs.
Delivering on a major CIRSA IT initiative, Alberto Díaz-Benito, IT Infrastructure & Operations Manager of Sportium, praised the work of Dell ECM’s ABAST unit.
He said: “Thanks to the excellent solutions of Dell EMC and the good work of ABAST experts, this project has fulfilled our expectations for a fast, operational backup environment. and reliable in all our productive environments.
“The savings in communications that we have achieved thanks to this was a key decision factor to address the project with these technologies.”
