StorageHoneyBaked Ham of Georgia sees up to 10x improved performance in transactional data and reporting systems

File attachment: 

HoneyBaked sells its hams and turkeys and side dishes—in addition to sandwiches and desserts—all year round, but no time is as busy for the business as the holidays. The company develops its own point-of-sale (POS) and inventory systems for its stores. Those applications, along with file systems and other business applications such as Microsoft® Exchange Server 2010, run on HP ProLiant DL360 servers. The servers are all virtualized using VMware vSphere 5 and running the Microsoft Windows® 2008 R2 operating system. To store its POS, inventory, and business data, HoneyBaked relied on direct attached storage (DAS). This case study describes the process the company undertook to replace its existing but outdated storage array to increase performance during peak retail hours to help inform better management decisions at retail locations.
