HyLife Chops Database Latency With PernixData FVP Storage Acceleration Software

Leading Pork Producer Deploys PernixData FVP, Sees 500% Reduction in ERP Query Times

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2016) - PernixData today announced that HyLife, a premier global producer and distributor of pork products, has deployed PernixData FVP™ software to accelerate access to its strategic ERP systems. With 5x faster database queries, the company has optimized operations, lowered costs, and maximized employee productivity.

Headquartered in Manitoba, Canada with operations in the U.S., Canada and China, HyLife produces 1.6 million hogs annually for global sales. Accurate information is critical for HyLife, who relies on two primary ERP applications to pull key data from various systems to forecast the business and maximize the efficiency of its operations. HyLife's 1,000+ employees query this data -- which includes ham scale, loin scale, bacteria levels, boxing systems, plant activity and more -- throughout the day from all over the world.

All of HyLife's core applications and databases are virtualized, making its infrastructure versatile and cost effective infrastructure. However, this was causing queries to take longer than expected, and the severe lag was taking a toll on employee productivity levels.

Faced with the challenge of finding a way to substantially shorten database query times, HyLife's senior systems administrator, Marcel Broesky, turned to PernixData FVP. After installing FVP, HyLife was able to create a low latency acceleration tier for storage reads and writes, with no changes required to their existing storage arrays.

"Queries that used to take up to 2.5 minutes now take under 30 seconds," said Broesky. "This performance improvement has a far reaching impact across the business, from better fulfillment of orders to optimized hog production. FVP has enabled HyLife to keep our strategic ERP systems on a virtualization cluster, which has important implications to the IT organization."
