Challenges

Cogo draws on its massive proprietary data surrounding current internet trends to identify high-potential business ideas - making data one of its most valuable assets. With its mission-critical databases growing rapidly, storage management is a high priority for the IT staff. However, Cogo’s legacy storage had reached capacity and the vendor’s suggested replacement couldn’t match data-management requirements. Cogo Labs needed a new data center with a modern, infinitely scalable IT infrastructure.

Results

With Pure Storage, data scientists and software developers are substantially more productive, supporting the company’s core mission of launching successful new companies. Storage management costs are sharply reduced, accelerating the move from cloud to on-premise solutions.

IT Transformation

  • “Blindingly fast storage” enables data scientists and developers to be considerably more productive.
  • Tight integration between Kubernetes and FlashBlade accelerates the transition to a new containerization management platform.
  • Workloads and data can be pulled back from the cloud, lowering operating costs.
