Case study

XEFI implements cloud solutions as the foundation for growth

IT services provider XEFI offers hosting solutions for the small and medium-sized business market. With more than 60 branches in France, the group needed a reliable, sustainable platform for its IT systems and services. It chose to implement a cloud solution based on HPE Synergy composable computing and HPE 3PAR storage.

Challenge

Flexible hosting services for SMBs
Founded over two decades ago, XEFI (formerly CFI Maintenance Informatique) is an IT service provider specializing in the small and medium business (SMB) market. It has 60 separate branches with 630 employees located across France.
In 2018, XEFI achieved a total turnover of �105 million of which 80% was generated by the SMB market. It provides turnkey services to meet all the IT needs of its clients, which help XEFI stand out from the competition. These include maintenance and managed services, security and internet connections, software services, printing, security, backup, and disaster recovery.
Another important differentiator is its growing lineup of independent franchisees, as founder of XEFI Group, Sacha Rosenthal, explains: "It's in our DNA to be as close as possible to our customers and to implement services as quickly as possible."
Supporting this demanding business meant that XEFI faced increased internal and external pressures. In addition, it also needed to keep up with the fast pace of new and emerging technologies and to support ambitious growth plans.
