Chico's FAS.jpgChico’s FAS started as a mom-and-pop folk arts supply house in 1983. Today, it’s a publicly traded retailer with four brands, over 1,300 stores, and double-digit revenue growth. Steven Ross, vice president for technology at Chico’s FAS, says Intel® technologies have been his bedrock throughout the company’s expansion. Ross’s use of the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series is helping his team provide the business with 3.5 times the computing capacity at one-third the energy consumption and in one-third the space of the company’s older data center.

“We intend to keep very current on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family and the technology that Intel is continuing to evolve so we can stay in the small space we have and stay as efficient as we can be as we build our cloud and provision our applications,” said Steven Ross, vice president for technology at Chico’s FAS, Inc.
