MDECA Makes the Grade with Flash from Pure Storage


Challenges

  • Mechanical disk-based SAN failed, putting MDECA at risk for data loss.
  • Required better performance from their storage system.

Results

  • Ability to support vastly more school district IT requirements.
  • Significantly faster SQL report run times (5 seconds instead of 20 minutes).
  • Processing time from 45 minutes to 10 seconds.
  • Achieved 5.5-to-1 data reduction.
The FlashArray has quite simply made everything better.
