Saturday, January 19, 2008

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.
