Recover the Cost of Downtime with ftServer: Makro SA

Always-on availability future-proofs leading retailer’s EFT credit and debit card processing infrastructure

Makro South Africa (SA) had hosted its credit and debit card processing service on Stratus® ftServer® systems since their previous server failed them for two hours in 2005. This failure cost the business over one million rand, not to mention its hard-earned brand reputation. At the time, Makro had been quick to understand that their ftServer system would soon pay for itself. It did.
