Ridley Bikes

Scalable data centre ready for the future

Building the best road bike in the world” is the mission of Ridley Bikes. An international Belgian player in the field of custom designed bicycles and supplier of Lotto Soudal, among others. In order to face global competition, maximum efficiency throughout the supply chain and the production process is key. Powerful and safe platforms form the backbone. The Ridley Bikes data centre was outdated. Ordina’s infrastructure consultants renewed the back-end hardware. Old standalone servers were replaced by Dell servers and Dell shared storage based on 10Gb iSCSI connectivity. The control of this new central platform was set up in a virtual environment (Microsoft Private Cloud). Ordina also takes care of the day-to-day management of the environment, active monitoring, security checks and updates. Today, a new data centre is ready for the future. The infrastructure solution is scalable and supports the further evolution of the business.
