GVB Finds the Right Policy with Pure Storage

See how Pure is enabling GVB to reduce high latencies to increase business application responsiveness running on VDI.

Summary

Gebäudeversicherung Bern (GVB) is a leading Swiss building insurance company that relies on a high-performing virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to help employees do their jobs efficiently. When its legacy spinning-disk storage system failed to keep pace with the demands of their VDI environment, a Pure Storage® FlashArray was purchased as a replacement. Today, response times for applications are much faster, IT processes are completed in far less time, and the company has a solid foundation for future expansion.
