GD Express sets sights on Cloud to deliver ecommerce

Australian footwear manufacturer, Blundstone Australia is looking for a group CIO to start immediately with the company.

Malaysia’s GD Express (GDEX) has adopted Nutanix Hybrid Cloud to keep pace with the fast-changing demands in e-commerce, which is set to catalyse Malaysia’s post-pandemic recovery.

Since implementation, Nutanix’ platform has enabled GDEX to accommodate large order spikes for key E-commerce events such as 11.11, resulting in an approximately 100% increase in GDEX’ overall business revenues.

Prior to adopting the Nutanix solution, GDEX was already managing up to 180,000 consignments a day, and each of these passed through multiple shipment tracking points before reaching its destination. The tracking points generate data that offers visibility on the shipment status, creating a myriad of records that needed to be processed and stored efficiently.
Unable to cope with the company’s growth, GDEX replaced its legacy IT infrastructure with three Nutanix Clusters and migrated all its core applications for governing shipments to the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud platform.

Using the Nutanix AOS and Nutanix Prism Pro, the company’s IT team now manages server, storage, and networking resources through a single pane of glass.

GDEX’ operations now run smoothly regardless of the volume of shipments. Staff now have all the information they need, whenever they need, to make sure deliveries are on schedule.

Charles Ong, special project advisor at GDEX said after comparing legacy infrastructure with Nutanix’ hyperconverged private cloud where software managed everything, it was clear that the latter would give us the rapid scalability.

“We needed to support fluctuating volumes at a lower cost,” he said.

GDEX plans to continue its success with Nutanix, which provides flexible modern infrastructure delivering seamless end-to-end operations.

As the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform is easily scalable, GDEX can increase capacity as the organisation grows.
