PUNE: From fully automated plants to tagging cows and buffaloes to playing music for better yield and developing cellphone apps to managing cattle and milk production, dairy owners in the state are becoming innovators.

In addition, tracking technologies for cattle and transport vehicles have brought a dose of modernity to traditional dairy farms.

Both small and big dairies in Maharashtra are looking at raising their production, cutting down losses and increasing their client base.

After Amul tagged each milk-yielding animal on their Anand farm using radio frequency identification (RFID), Chitale used the same technology at their Bhilawdi farm in Sangli to tag and track each animal and store the information on their private servers. Gowardhan Dairy in Manchar near Pune also adopted RFID to identify their cattle by numbers.

PUNE, INDIA: If you are in the dairy industry or in Pune, chances are creamy that you may have eavesdropped on the name ‘Chitale’ in some or the other conversation about milk, sweets or cattle. But what is striking is the fact that you can catch the mention of this name in equal probability at IT conferences trying to whip up sense out of virtualization or data centre consolidation as well.

For instance, when one sees Vishvas Chitale, partner, Chitale Dairy, milking the lessons of timely and smart application of new tech-disruptions for an IT audience at Dell Storage Forum, it makes one wonder if this IT-savvy man, who fills with panache curiosity glasses with tech lessons, is indeed someone who belongs to the land of cows and sweets.

After several years of testing a system that combines radio frequency identification and cell phones to record and track the health and nutrition of cows and water buffaloes on Indian farms, Chitale Dairy, in Bhilawadi, has significantly increased its animals' health and productivity. In fact, Chitale reports, since the dairy began utilizing the system, the animals' milk yields have increased and are now three to four times higher than the national average.

The reason for this increased yield, the systems' developers say, is that Chitale can now better manage the visits of the service providers it sends to those farms, as well as store a greater amount of resulting information about the visits and the services administered, or the observations made during those visits, such as vaccinations, calf delivery, medications or simply the volume of milk produced by a particular cow. The system was developed by researchers at Bombay Veterinary College. Because of that success, a company known as Infovet is now marketing the system's software to dairies throughout India and other parts of the world. Animal identification technology company Allflex India provides the tags and readers for this solution.

Mumbai: The dairy went in for virtualisation, a method of running multiple independent virtual operating systems on a single physical computer. It is a way of maximising physical resources to maximise the investment in hardware.

In 2007, the company consolidated its IT environment into three physical servers in one data centre. These servers host 20 virtual servers running multiple applications and operating systems.

With this, the firm reduced hardware acquisition cost by 50 per cent. Server deployment time came down from three weeks to a few hours. Crucially, it reduced power, cooling, and real estate costs by consolidating from 10 servers to three.

VMware, Inc., (NYSE: VMW) the global leader in virtualization solutions from the desktop to the datacenter, today announced that Chitale Dairy, a leading food and beverage company in Maharashtra, India, has used VMware's market-leading datacenter virtualization and management platform, VMware Infrastructure, to consolidate its two widely separated datacenters into one, while significantly improving application availability and reliability.

Chitale Dairy, which produces about 400,000 liters of milk per day as well as cream, butter and yoghurt, faced operational challenges with 10 physical servers spread across two datacenters in a town 500 kilometres from the nearest city. In its remote location, the company found it expensive and challenging to source and retain qualified IT support staff while also grappling with server sprawl.
