Tasty Baking Company Slashes Data Center Energy Costs and Quickly Rolls Out SAP Upgrade
Tasty Baking Company, founded in 1914 and headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is one of the country's leading bakers of snack cakes, pies, cookies, and donuts. Tasty Baking Company products serve as the industry benchmark for consistent taste, quality, and freshness. Maintaining such standards in a manufacturing operation that produces nearly five million perishable items daily can present major challenges to an IT organization. The company wanted to build redundant, easy-to-manage infrastructure for business applications. A systems integrator specializing in end-to-end enterprise infrastructure solutions, most effectively addressed requirements with a virtualized infrastructure built on VMware and storage from NetApp. By standardizing on VMware, the Tasty Baking Company team started focusing on IT resources on a single infrastructure that delivers the ideal combination of flexibility and redundancy.
