McCain Foods, an international frozen foods leader based in Canada, was constrained by storage issues resulting in processing delays and missed SLAs. They turned to IBM for assistance and found their solutions through IBM FlashSystem. IBM Flash V9000 was deployed in a configuration which included IBM POWER8 servers and VSC in support of SAP applications.
The results were impressive! Work processing time went from 15 minutes down to 1-2 minutes according to McCain Foods. With IBM Real-time Compression that was introduced with the V9000, McCain foods received a 3 to 1 compression ratio for optimized capacity and reduced costs. IBM Flash Systems also allowed McCain Foods to reduce their footprint gain savings in power usage and cooling costs.
By working with IBM Business Partners, McCain Foods now enjoys excellent performance, response times, and resource utilization which reinstituted superior service levels and provided an IT foundation for continued market leadership.
