Headquartered in Chicago, Bean Suntory owns over 70 premium spirit brands from whiskey and rum, to vodka, cognac, tequila, and gin. Beam Suntory generates $4 billion in annual revenues.

But that revenue was in danger.

The company’s production software, Wonderware, which controls embedded systems driving almost every critical production process, was underpinned by ageing hardware. If it failed, production would come to a grinding—and expensive—halt.Every hour of downtime results in lost production, which can amount to millions of dollars in losses,” says Sanjay Kirtikar, Director Digital Technologies, Beam Suntory.

To ensure Wonderware never failed, Beam Suntory implemented  hyperconverged clusters integrated with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform software.

The results were instant and outstanding. Beam Suntory expects a 25-35% cost benefit from lower support and maintenance efforts, and a 50% reduction in power usage.
