Challenges

The Red Hawk Casino network was hitting the limits of its performance, frequently seeing slow response times for transactions involving guests on the casino floor, leading to frustrated guests and the potential for shortened visits.

Challenges included:

  • Ensure fast system response times for guests and employees.
  • Eliminate storage as a problem center for IT.

  • Improved guest experience and satisfaction.
  • 30-40% storage CAPEX avoidance for dev/test.
  • 87% reduction in electricity costs.
  • Deferred data center expansion costs.
