Pure Storage Helps Boost Search Performance of Workday Recruiting

Deploys FlashArray to Accelerate Data Center Performance and Simplify Storage Management

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – January 27, 2015 — Pure Storage, the market’s leading independent solid-state array vendor, today announced that Workday, Inc. (NYSE: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, has deployed FlashArrays from Pure Storage to help deliver seamless search for Workday Recruiting and increase the performance and efficiency of its data center.

Workday Recruiting is seamlessly unified with Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) to equip customers with complete insight into their talent pipeline -- from sourcing through succession -- in one system. Using the Pure Storage FlashArray, Workday can greatly enhance the data-intensive application’s performance, throughput and reliability of data processing.

“As a cloud provider, our customers expect our applications to be available 24/7 without fail and with high performance. It is not uncommon for storage loads to range dramatically in a short time,” said David Clarke, vice president, technology development, Workday. “In our case, storage is more than just a data archive – it’s a strategic imperative. We needed a solution that could deliver consistent and reliable performance.”

Ultimately, improving search performance has allowed Workday to help hiring teams find, engage, and select the best internal and external candidates for open positions through its recruiting application.

Workday also credits Pure Storage FlashArray for its intuitive management console. “We often hire developers fresh out of college that have never touched a SAN before. Despite being new to storage, they’re navigating FlashArray’s user interface in minutes, and learning how to create a LUN in under an hour,” said Clarke.

“Workday is a prime example of a data-driven enterprise that has exceeded the performance limits of disk,” said Matt Kixmoeller, vice president of products at Pure Storage. “With the performance, speed and ease-of-use of FlashArray, Workday can continue increasing the efficiency and sophistication of its high-volume, high-demand applications, and further differentiate its HCM suite from the competition.”
