Epic Performance Gains at the University of Kansas Health System


The University of Kansas Health System needed a new storage solution to meet the performance requirements of its Epic EHR system. Installing all-flash arrays from Pure Storage has exceeded the Epic performance requirements, reduced downtimes, given application-development teams more flexibility, and slashed the time it takes to generate key reports.


  • Cost of upgrading storage to meet Epic requirements was prohibitively expensive.
  • "Rip and replace” cycle needed to be broken.

Use Case:

  • Database – Epic® Caché®

Business Transformation:

  • Enhanced efficiency for application development teams. Reduced costs for power, cooling and data-centre space. Greater predictability of long-term storage costs.

IT Transformation:

  • Time required to run selected Epic Clarity reports slashed from 5½ hours to 20 minutes.
  • Snapshots accelerate software development process.
  • Five racks of storage equipment reduced to 20RU.
“With Pure Storage, we… knocked the Epic performance requirements through the roof.”
Mike Schlenk, Assistant Director, Server Design, Development and Enterprise Storage, University of Kansas Health System
