Challenges

Despite its commercial success, Argentina’s economic situation—characterized by a generalized increase in prices, a weak currency, and rising energy rates—has forced CFA to look for ways to optimise operational costs, including those related to its technology infrastructure. CFA needed to:

  • Renew its technology infrastructure after hosting data center externally.
  • Optimise energy and space expenses

Results

Business Transformation

Pure Storage provides a highly available platform to support mission-critical applications while reducing space and power consumption within its data center, resulting in lower operating expenses.

IT Transformation

  • Reduced data-center space requirements from a complete rack to only three rack units.
  • Replaced a high power-consuming array, equipped with three or four sources, with a low-consuming one, with two 10amp sources.
  • Accelerated system processes by up to 9x.
  • Provided a highly available platform to meet the demands of mission-critical applications.
