"Synology was the best option as it was not only stable but also cost-effective. Thanks to the intuitive user interface, we managed to deploy 1,350 units of NAS quickly and efficiently." François Lyonnet, Head of Integration in Krys Group

The Company

KRYS GROUP is the leading company in the French optical market. Founded in 1966 in a cooperative form, it now represents 3 brands of optics: Krys, Vision Plus and Lynx Optique, and 1 auditorium, Krys Audition.

Today, more than 4 million customers seek advice from 6,000 specialists in 1,400 stores of KRYS GROUP.
Since 1980, the site of Bazainville in the Yvelines, has regrouped the activities of purchase, logistics and production of high-quality glasses of KRYS GROUP.

The Challenge

Krys Group has more than 1300 shops, which are located all over France. In order to unify communication within a group level, marketing materials and collaterals are sent to each shop.

To facilitate this processus, files must be sent throught the Internet to a file server.

Krys Group was looking for a replacement of their previous system, as the equipments were obsolete.

To meet the company's needs, the solution must fulfill the following requirements, including deployment in each shop, ability to integrate with existing infrastructure, easy configuration and deployment, and cost-effictiveness.

The Solution

After a thorough research, Krys Group noticed that Synology products are often highly recommended.

Synology experts accompanied Krys group when selecting the right NAS for their infrastructure , and the DS215+ was selected for its excellent cost/performance ratio. A DS215+ was setup in each store to provide file services with SMB/CIFS.

For maximum efficiency, the company aimed to deploy all 1,350 DS215+ within less than a year. Therefore, Synology has supported Krys Group greatly for the massive deployment.

With this deployment plan, Krys Group was able to manage their budget more efficiently. The entire architecture was stable and required hardly any maintenance so far, thus reducing additional expense for the company. Moreover, the deployment process was smooth and effortless. With the intuitive interface, employees can enjoy easy system management and higher efficiency.
