This will allow Avis to support a fully remote workforce amid the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as improve system performances, enhance disaster recovery and simplify management of their IT infrastructure. Auto Europe serves travel agents and brokers at approximately 24,000 car rental locations in 180 countries around the world. With so many customers and locations, Auto Europe needed a solution that would improve scalability and performance. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck they knew their solution could enable employees to work from home and support their 24/7 call centers. Auto Europe was able to seamlessly transition employees to work from anywhere and allowed them to respond to customers quickly, improving the online experience and increasing customer loyalty. In addition to enabling employees to work from anywhere, Auto Europe is now able to easily scale when new projects or contracts are signed. Before Nutanix it could take them upwards of six months to deploy new infrastructure, but now it takes less than two weeks. All Auto Europe enterprise workloads are now running on Nutanix, along with supporting about 660 virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) users. In addition to Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure and VDI, Auto Europe also implemented Nutanix Files, a software-defined scale-out file storage solution to support their user data, file shares, profile data, shared systems, web and application servers, system logs and more. Despite the challenges that COVID-19 has presented, Auto Europe has been able to quickly adapt and continue serving customers. Additionally, thanks to Nutanix, the IT team has been able to focus on developing new technology to support the business, rather than simply maintaining the IT infrastructure.
