Cal-Maine’s IT Director, Bob Gilmore, began to explore the option of IaaS, which would eliminate the expense of purchasing and maintaining technology and allow Cal-Maine to create their primary data center outside of existing facilities.
Sixty years in business, Cal-Maine has a history of selecting vendors carefully, and this was no exception. Mr. Gilmore wanted a partner committed to understanding Cal-Maine’s business and technology needs.
He chose M3COM.
Within three years, Cal-Maine’s migration to M3COM’s cloud environment resulted in over $500k in cost savings. Additionally, Mr. Gilmore said the move gave Cal-Maine “phenomenal” broadband connectivity. “M3COM is connected to almost every carrier known to man, but when Cal-Maine Foods was moving to the cloud, fiber wasn’t even an option at the corporate headquarters in Jackson, Mississippi.”
