BUSINESS BENEFITS

Consumer dietary demands are changing in China, and Guangdong Yihao Foodstuff Co. Ltd., a leading brand throughout the country, has been at the forefront of the industry. To achieve its mission of “producing high-quality food to promote a healthy lifestyle,” Yihao Foodstuff is committed to delivering not only superior products, but also a superior consumer experience. To maximize business development and meet the needs of digital transformation, Yihao Foodstuff partnered with Nutanix to consolidate its operations onto a single hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). 

Compared to a traditional IT architecture, Nutanix offers outstanding advantages in security, reliability, efficiency, flexibility, and usability. For the past four years, we have depended on the Nutanix Pulse capability to provide proactive alerts about potential infrastructure malfunctions. Its ability to deliver 24x7 availability has greatly alleviated the burden of remote operations and maintenance on our IT department.

Chen Wei, Chief Information Officer, IT Center, Guangdong Yihao Foodstuff Co. Ltd.

“Nutanix has been our most trustworthy IT partner for years. Our hyperconverged infrastructure solution enables us to scale to keep pace with a constantly growing array of IT applications,” said Chen Wei, Chief Information Officer at Guangdong Yihao Foodstuff. The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud solution enables the company to improve the efficiency and stability of its infrastructure, while providing the flexibility and scalability it needs to support digital transformation. 

Early in the transformation, tracking revealed that application cloning in the new system was five times faster than it had been in the traditional environment, while Input/Output Operations per Second (IOPS) performance efficiency improved by 200 percent. All metrics have confirmed the outstanding productivity enabled by the firm’s investment in Nutanix Enterprise Cloud solution. 

In addition, one-click management tools and resourceful post-sales service make it easy for Yihao Foodstuff to support remote management and maintenance on its data center at Zhanjiang, which is 300 kilometers away from its headquarters. 

With its Nutanix solution in place, Yihao Foodstuff has been able to proceed with its digital transformation initiative without burdening its IT operations and maintenance teams with additional workloads. The new infrastructure has not only reduced labor costs, but streamlined the entire IT operation process, providing robust support for the company’s core businesses operations. Moreover, it has empowered IT to support the expansion of its entire industrial chain mechanism, encompassing the company, its production sites, farmers, and chain stores. Nutanix is the engine that helps Yihao Foodstuff drive its corporate strategy forward.
