Institute of Public Administration Boosts Availability and Performance with Pure Storage

Saudi Arabia’s Institute of Public Administration (IPA) relies on Pure Storage to help train employees to serve citizens and businesses more efficiently. 


Saudi Arabia’s Institute of Public Administration (IPA) reduced operating costs, improved application performance, and eliminated downtime when it replaced its legacy storage with a Pure FlashArray and adopted the Pure Evergreen Storage model to support online training programs for its 2,000 employees, who play a central role in the implementation of Saudi Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Plan for economic development.


  • Government/Public Sector


  • Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Use Cases

  • Database: Microsoft SQL Server
  • Virtualisation platform: VMware vSphere



Public employees rely on IPA’s online training programs to improve their productivity and build on their knowledge and skills so that they can serve citizens and businesses as efficiently as possible. The institute’s legacy infrastructure mixed SSDs and HDDs, resulting in high latency, a large footprint, and high CAPEX and OPEX, and created downtime for business-critical applications. IPA required a high-availability, low-latency storage system to:

  • Reduce TCO
  • Achieve high availability of critical applications, such as nomination and admission processes
  • Eliminate downtime for maintenance or upgrades


Business Transformation

IPA plays a central role in implementing Saudi Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Plan for economic development. The industry-leading, all-flash, 100%-NVMe technology from Pure Storage®, coupled with Evergreen Storage™, provides 24/7 availability and high performance for IPA’s critical business applications so that the organisation can deliver on its promise of excellence.

IT Transformation

  • 40% reduction in TCO 
  • Sub-millisecond latency for the nomination and admission processes—two of IPA’s most critical applications 
  • Evergreen business model delivers zero downtime for maintenance or upgrades
