King’s Hawaiian has selected dinCloud to implement its hosted virtual desktop, server, and storage services to help IT improve efficiency and better manage operations across King’s Hawaiian’s baking facilities and restaurants.
King’s Hawaiian was looking for a cost effective, one-stop solution that could eventually help them expand internationally. Additionally, they wanted a provider that could reliably manage day-to-day operations so their IT team could focus on the value added tasks of the core business.
dinCloud provided King’s Hawaiian with hosted virtual desktops (dinHVD), hosted virtual servers (dinServer), and NetApp-based cloud storage (dinBackup) – part of its business provisioning services. By moving King’s Hawaiian’s business (servers, applications, data, and desktops) to the cloud, the company is able to enjoy more control and easier management of its IT infrastructure. Additionally, dinCloud successfully brought some of King’s Hawaiian’s business applications into the cloud, including several unique homegrown apps.
“dinCloud provided an exceptional level of support during King’s Hawaiian’s transition to the cloud, and our valued white glove treatment continues even after the on-boarding process,” said Saad Shahzad, senior vice president and chief strategy officer, dinCloud. “Throughout the implementation, we were able to leverage one of our trusted reseller partners, pulling in specialists to help meet King’s Hawaiian’s unique user needs on an as needed basis. Most businesses aren’t typically awarded those kinds of resources, but we offered these additional services and value adds from the beginning.”
King’s Hawaiian, a family-owned and operated Hawaiian food company and commercial bakery, has been delighting palates young and old since its founder, Robert R. Taira, created the recipe for Original Hawaiian Sweet Bread nearly 60 years ago in Hilo, HI. Today, they operate more than 270,000 square feet of baking facilities in Torrance, CA, and Oakwood, GA.
