Challenges

The slower performance of Carilion’s previous disk-based storage contributed to problems meeting a service-level agreement that required that end users had to experience less than 25ms response time from the Epic suite.

Results

Business Transformation

The growing degree of automation in Pure infrastructure is allowing Carilion to reduce their dependence on staff with skills in specific domains such as storage, and increase their employment of IT generalists.

IT Transformation

  • Carilion has so far experienced 100% uptime. The capacity and performance forecasting features within Pure1, helped Carilion expand its storage capacity exponentially without expanding the size of its small storage team.
