Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated is the second largest Coca-Cola bottler in the United States, with territories in 11 states and serving more than 18 million consumers. Coca-Cola Bottling Company wanted 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity without the expense of building a new data center. Coca Cola Bottling Company built a new 10 Gigabit Ethernet pod design based on Cisco Nexus 5010 Switches with Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) capability. The IT department is migrating servers to the new pod design gradually, as equipment ages, leases mature, or the company introduces new applications.
