The case for smarter retail infrastructure

Quick service restaurants are experiencing a surge in post-COVID innovation as customer buying behaviors are changed forever. Customers now demand a better experience - personalization, touchless ordering, smart drive-thrus with pick-up times measured in seconds, and highly consistent food quality.

A new type of in-restaurant infrastructure is required that can support all these new applications without costing the earth.

Support a mix of applications

Deploy run and manage all of your applications through the Sunlight marketplace - whether legacy VM-based, Kubernetes or container based.

Continuous operations

Intermittent WAN connections can cause business interruption. Sunlight offers continuous business operations (even when WAN fails) with high availability, data protection and disconnected running.

Central management

Sunlight gives you all the infrastructure services you need in one simple bundle that can be installed in less than 10 minutes and managed remotely. Problems can be fixed quickly without requiring a truck roll.

Fit anywhere

Restaurants have limited space, power and cooling - so the solution needs to small, rugged and work in the smallest possible physical footprint.

Easy consolidation

Consolidate your in-restaurant infrastructure from 10-20 discrete systems down to a single highly reliable and centrally remotely manageable, low cost system that runs all your applications.
