FlashArray For Faster, More Predictable Environment


Customer:

AGR, a leading business in the oil and gas sector, uses Pure Storage® FlashArray for a faster and more predictable environment in a volatile and challenging industry landscape. Replacing its legacy storage with FlashArray//M20 has allowed AGR to run three streams — virtualization, reservoir management, and office management — from a single rack, with 33% faster processing and three times faster data transfer speeds.

Challenges:

  • Performance was slow on the hybrid system.
  • AGR needed greater cost control and predictability in this volatile sector.
  • AGR was unable to implement and run new business applications.

Use Case:

Business Transformation:

  • Greater performance and cost predictability across the business allowed AGR to adopt new applications and services and better plan for future expansion in a volatile industry landscape. Storage is now a simple and seamless part of the IT team’s function, allowing them to better allocate the time they would otherwise have spent on maintenance.

IT Transformation:

  • Data processing is now faster by 33%.
  • Data transfer speeds are 3X faster.
  • Storage unit was reduced from 10U to 3U.
“We’ve now got greater speed and cost predictability, which is a strong foundation for delivering our services in a volatile landscape. This has been well received by our executives, particularly our CFO, who can plan ahead without any major bumps in the road.”
Mike Christensen, Global IT Manager, AGR
