NES Powers Sustainable Progress in Tennessee

Facing a substantial cost to continue maintenance of its aging storage infrastructure, Nashville Electric Service (NES) chose to migrate to Pure Storage for better reliability, lower cost, and a sustainable future.


Summary

NES was used to power outages caused by tornadoes, windstorms, and derechos, but IT service outages were different. Its aging technology routinely suffered outages during upgrades, and inefficient disaster recovery caused delays. So, when confronted with a huge bill for continued maintenance, the utility provider decided to switch to Pure Storage. The move eliminated complexity, improved restore times, reduced cost, and created a more sustainable IT environment.

Challenges

Serving a large community that depends on continuous service, NES became concerned about time-consuming upgrades that disrupted internal projects. A four-day outage due to poor restore capabilities following a major windstorm added to the discomfort with aging technology. When NES received a bill for more than one million dollars for ongoing maintenance of outdated storage, it was time to consider options.
