Shutterfly Optimizes Customer Experience, Shrinks Data Footprint, and Saves Big with Pure Storage


Challenges

  • Storage that would meet performance requirements for the long term and support future growth
  • Needed a storage solution that would increase density of storage to drive down energy and facilities costs, enable upgrades-in-place, and improve response times for customer interactions

Results

  • Eliminated storage bottleneck, with response times dropping from 5ms to 1ms - a 500% improvement.
  • Significant data reduction with an average of 4.5:1, and up to 15.8:1 on MongoDB - translating into far less CapEx spend on equipment and space
  • The confidence to deploy new services and products without fear that the customer experience will suffer
