Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, has announced that Treatt, an ingredients manufacturer and solutions provider, is implementing Nutanix as part of a digital transformation to ensure business continuity and to simplify IT management.
Before implementing Nutanix, Treatt had a traditional three-tier infrastructure consisting of servers, networking and storage. Maintaining this environment was both costly and labor-intensive which delayed processes and updates. Productivity suffered while the IT team had to wait for queries and simple processes to be completed. They needed a solution that would simplify IT management, increase the efficiency of their team, and help it to secure the company’s digital future.
“Treatt handles flavor, and we knew the sooner we could get back to that, the better it would be for our company. Nutanix created its hyperconvergence products with a clear intent of being minimally invasive at every stage,” said Brent Gay, Network Engineer at Treatt. “I love that aspect. It felt like closing my eyes in fear as the doctor prepares a shot, only to realize that the process is already over.”
With Nutanix Move, Treatt was able to seamlessly migrate from their previous provider to AHV, the natively integrated virtualization solution. The Treatt IT team feared the painful process of implementing a new large-scale infrastructure, but with Nutanix they did not experience any of this.
The IT team has streamlined system management using one simple user-interface, freeing up time to focus on other important and strategic projects. The IT team is now able to offer innovative solutions to other areas of the company, such as end-user machine deployment, thanks to a more agile infrastructure. Instead of always putting out fires, the team is able to proactively deliver value to the company.
Before Nutanix, Treatt was also lacking a disaster recovery (DR) solution despite being based in central Florida, a region prone to inclement weather and hurricanes. To address this issue, Treatt decided to implement Nutanix Xi Leap, its cloud-based Disaster Recovery solution. Nutanix enabled Treatt to set up three redundant DR systems in different locations within their facility. If one fails, others take over without interruption. However, if the entire facility were to go down, Xi Leap will seamlessly take over to ensure business continuity until primary systems are restored.
“Whether the failover was planned or unplanned, the end users would not notice much change. That is, in effect, the power and necessity of a strong business continuity solution,” said John Bertero, VP, USA Commercial Sales. “With Xi Leap, customers can feel at ease knowing they can continue to operate through a variety of disasters and communicate this safety to its clients, giving them peace of mind as well.”
Treatt’s UK division is currently migrating to Nutanix to provide the IT team with more memory and storage capacity for their heavier workloads and is also looking to bring Nutanix to their operations in China.
