Challenges

In 2015, the IT department decided to carry out a technological renovation, and one of the solutions that needed to be updated was the storage.

  • The company needed a storage platform that offers a good cost ratio per TB.
  • SAP HANA had to be implemented without service interruptions.
  • Allow replicating information to a contingency site in a safe and consistent way and under the time required by the business.
  • Simplify storage infrastructure operation with a better TCO in comparison to previous technology.

Results

Business Transformation

The deployment of three Pure Storage FlashArrays has allowed Agrosuper to streamline its operations and use its turnkey technical resources to provide direct value in its internal processes and in project development. It has also been able to deploy the SAP HANA platform to accelerate its business processes without complications. Finally, with the recent integration of CAT functionality for SAP, IT Management at Agrosuper has been able to accelerate projects and generate savings, while at the same time providing continuous customer service improvements.

IT Transformation

  • Storage management was simplified, improving the operational continuity of the storage service, due to the fact that the risk of human error was reduced.
  • With CAT for SAP, it could complete the copying and cloning of a 21TB database — a process that usually took days — in just 20 minutes.
