Challenges

Public employees rely on IPA’s online training programs to improve their productivity and build on their knowledge and skills so that they can serve citizens and businesses as efficiently as possible. The institute’s legacy infrastructure mixed SSDs and HDDs, resulting in high latency, a large footprint, and high CAPEX and OPEX, and created downtime for business-critical applications. IPA required a high-availability, low-latency storage system to:

  • Reduce TCO
  • Achieve high availability of critical applications, such as nomination and admission processes
  • Eliminate downtime for maintenance or upgrades

Results

Business Transformation

IPA plays a central role in implementing Saudi Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Plan for economic development. The industry-leading, all-flash, 100%-NVMe technology from Pure Storage®, coupled with Evergreen Storage™, provides 24/7 availability and high performance for IPA’s critical business applications so that the organization can deliver on its promise of excellence.

IT Transformation

  • 40% reduction in TCO 
  • Sub-millisecond latency for the nomination and admission processes—two of IPA’s most critical applications 
  • Evergreen business model delivers zero downtime for maintenance or upgrades
