All-Flash Array Promises Data Security and Disaster Recovery


The Municipality of San Benedetto del Tronto is equipped with Pure Storage FlashArray™ on which virtual servers run mission-critical functions related to email, document management, application servers, part of the registry, taxes, and financial flows — in short, everything that would be done in a company by enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. Pure immediately distinguished itself for its technological architecture, performance, and last but not least, convenience.


  • Become a paperless municipality, replacing physical support with digital services.
  • Strengthen the IT system to manage regional projects to integrate services for citizens.
  • Reduce time and the costs of access to data and encourage desktop virtualization.

Use Case:

  • VDI

Business Transformation:

Pure Storage plays an important role in digital transformation, with the goal of becoming a paperless entity. The strengthening of the IT infrastructure enabled by Pure supports the municipality, which is now a leader of a regional project to integrate skills and services for the citizens and help the municipalities that have been hit by earthquakes in Central Italy.

IT Transformation:

  • Data compression is up to a factor of 3.8: 1.
  • Reduction of storage management costs estimated at 20%.
  • Alignment with the guidelines of the Municipality for IT transformation towards the virtualization of desktops and thin clients.
  • Continuity with the server consolidation strategy to optimize IT resources.

“ We have been using Pure Storage for less than a year, and the benefits are already evident. Among these, the main ones are effectiveness, efficiency and speed, not only to improve performance and services but also to reduce costs.”
