Coca-Cola Quenches Thirst for Performance with IBM XIV
Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (CCBCC) is the largest independent Coca-Cola bottler in the United States. Virtualizing 500 Windows servers tripled CCBCC’s storage requirements. Expanding its tier-one storage systems would have been too costly, but its tier-two systems could not provide enough performance.
This case study explores how CCBCC successfully deployed the IBM XIV Storage System—a storage solution that perfectly complements a virtualization environment through its use of a virtualized grid architecture. This enables the XIV system to deliver tier-one performance at a tier-two price, with consistent performance and availability as well as simplicity.
