Summary

Avago Technologies is a leading semiconductor device supplier to the wireless, enterprise storage, wired, and industrial end markets. For the past two years Avago experienced astronomical business growth which its existing data storage system could not keep up with. After deploying Pure Storage, Avago Technologies was able to cut its storage hardware from five racks to just one at each of its three datacenters as well as garner greater cost savings as Oracle databases were consolidated.
