Helping Heritage Foods to upgrade to a scalable, flexible, and sustainably cost-efficient infrastructure for its business-critical SAP and front-end POS systems

By Nijhum Rudra

EMC has secured a significant win at Heritage Foods Limited in India by restructuring of its IT infrastructure and also transformed the business. This has enabled them to reduce operational costs as they are now able to significantly reduce the project time and rapidly achieve the project target.

The previous platform used by Heritage Foods lacked the flexibility needed to release new services, leading to delayed application delivery while the cost involved in scaling up the platform to match the performance requirements was phenomenal.

EMC VSPEX has helped Heritage Foods eliminate the high licensing costs associated with the earlier servers and also reduce time and effort in operations management, both leading to a significant reduction in TCO. In addition, with the implementation of virtualization, VSPEX has improved the utilization of the entire IT infrastructure by distributing the infrastructure as per the usage requirements.

The EMC VESPEX proven Infrastructure implemented comprises of EMC VNX 5200 unified storage, EMC Avamar deduplication backup software, EMC RecoverPoint™ data protection and recovery tool, VMware® vSphere™ virtualization, Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) servers, and Cisco switches.

EMC Avamar which uses variable-length deduplication to identify unique changed data on a daily basis and stores it as a daily backup in a matter of few minutes has helped streamline backup administration for Heritage.

Heritage has also implemented a FLASH 1st strategy by combining VNX, FAST Cache, and a combination of solid-state and SAS drives. VNX, along with FAST Cache, can attain the performance benchmark of as high as 15,000 IOPS which will help Heritage easily manage I/O extensive workloads.

Commenting on the partnership with EMC, Srikant Pachigolla, Heritage Foods, concluded “Today, organizations all over the world are going through transformation and are experiencing tremendous growth and demand. To ensure efficient customer service, smooth internal operation and increase the overall productivity of the company, it is crucial to upgrade the IT infrastructure. We are extremely glad to be associated with EMC who will help us achieve our goals faster and in a timely and cost- efficient manner.”
