Striving for technological advancement across its member locations, Iowa Select Farms faced a critical hurdle – an outdated core infrastructure. The company recognized the urgent need to revamp its operations to support envisioned technology initiatives. Without a robust infrastructure overhaul, the company risk comprised reliability and flexibility in its innovations. 

After meticulous analysis of resource consumption, Cisco UCS Blade Chassis emerged as the optimal choice, facilitated by LightEdge’s close partnership with Cisco. This partnership ensured the integrity of the server infrastructure and laid the foundation for a stable and high-performing environment. 

“This was a very large step forward for Iowa Select Farms, and I am very satisfied with the outcome. We now have two rock solid data centers that perform at high levels, and replicate to each other between the Altoona data center and our Iowa Falls office.”
