Challenges

In 2013, the company performed an extensive survey of the storage market, using a weighted set of criteria that included performance (latency, IOPS and throughput), in-line deduplication, compression, thin provisioning, native encryption, ease of management, and support and maintenance. They were facing several challenges.

  • Lagging storage performance slowed response times on key member-facing applications.
  • Legacy storage was complex to manage and difficult to expand.

Results

Business Transformation

Member-facing staff now serves the Credit Union members more efficiently, while the company saves on capital and operating expenses associated with its storage infrastructure.

IT Transformation

  • Response times for customer-facing applications improved by up to 70%.
  • Storage-related capital and operating costs reduced by more than 50%.
  • Downtime and Disaster Recovery Risk (DRR) for SQL Server and Private Cloud workloads eliminated.
  • Space requirements for storage slashed from 40 to 7 rack units.
