Ottawa County Modernizes for Digital Growth

When a neighboring county lost all its data, Ottawa County accelerated its modernization initiative, reshaping its infrastructure with Pure Storage as the foundation.


Located in northwest Ohio, Ottawa County is a community of 40,000 best known for its outdoor recreational activities. The county fast-tracked a modernization initiative when news broke that a nearby county lost all data and had no backup. The county centralized storage services with Pure Storage, saving 40% in costs, increasing performance by 10X, and protecting data with immutable SafeMode™ snapshots.

Use Cases

  • Accelerate Core Applications

  • Modernize Data Protection



As Ottawa County embraced digitization, it experienced exponential data growth that stressed storage capacity, budget, and resources. Each department had its own dedicated storage and backup, making it difficult and costly to fund capacity increases. System performance degraded as data volumes grew, and the rising threat of ransomware and data loss put the county at risk, as demonstrated by the catastrophic data loss in a neighboring county.


Business Transformation

  • Protects against ransomware, data loss, and service disruption
  • Ensures availability of citizen services and critical support systems
  • Maximizes long-term value of storage investment funded by taxpayers

IT Transformation

  • 100:1 data reduction decreases footprint, saving 40% in costs 
  • 10X faster performance for internal and citizen-facing applications
  • Delivers peace of mind with immutable SafeMode snapshots
