Business Transformation

  • Deploying VDI with all-flash has allowed St. Luke's to improve the ability of physicians to serve patients more effectively, while achieving an ROI of 234%.

IT Transformation

  • Latencies reduced from as high as 300 ms to consistently sub-1 ms.
  • A "tap-and-go" log-in system has greatly improved the mobility of physicians and their ability to serve patients more effectively.
  • Storage administration requires far less time. System upgrades are now performed nondisruptively during normal business hours. 
  • Data reduction as high as 10:1.
  • Total capex and opex benefits total nearly $1.8 million over three years.
“In our Pure VDI environment, we have about an 8.4 to 1 data reduction ratio. If you add in the thin provisioning, it’s 10.1 to 1. So it’s been really great, to be able to have that many virtual desktops use up so little space.”
