Sierra Nevada is brewing up business transformation with Pure Storage


Challenges

  • Slow performance hinders business growth.
  • Major storage overhaul for every upgrade.

Results

  • Latency drops from 300 milliseconds to less than 1 millisecond.
  • Data footprint reduced by storing 35 TB of data in 7.5 TB of capacity.
  • Energy costs now 1/10th the cost of operating standard spinning disks.
  • No more forklift upgrades with Forever Flash.
“From a heating and cooling perspective, we're probably using about one-tenth of the power for Pure Storage FlashArray, compared to what we needed to run our spinning disks. Not only is that good for our bottom line, it helps us meet our sustainability goals and reduce our carbon footprint.”
