TTX Optimizes Railcar Pooling Operations

Transportation company eliminates performance problems and vastly simplifies storage management tasks.

Summary

TTX Company is responsible for the efficient management of nearly a quarter million railcars. To ensure each railcar maintains optimal utilization, the company’s IT infrastructure must operate at peak efficiency. When lagging performance of its storage system created bottlenecks, the company installed all-flash arrays from Pure Storage. The new data platform, coupled with Rubrik’s comprehensive data management solution, has eliminated performance problems and vastly simplified storage management tasks for the lean IT staff.

Challenges

Tracking the movement of railcars is at the heart of TTX operations and the IT department that supports it. “It is a highly transactional application that handles more than a million messages on a routine day,” noted Chad Plemons, Director of Digital Operations.

  • Storage bottlenecks caused delays in the company’s critical railcartracking application.
  • Initial use of solid-state storage failed to eliminate performance problems.
  • Lengthy backup windows and recovery times increased the complexity of managing multiple fragmented solutions.

Results

Business Transformation

The business-critical railcar-tracking application runs without delay, ensuring peak utilization of the company’s key assets. Complex BI analytics can now run without impacting routine business functions.

IT Transformation

  • Simplified data protection delivers instant recovery time objectives, more granular recovery performance objectives, and the ability to archive to the cloud.
  • Performance problems with key asset tracking, asset management and data warehouse applications disappear.
  • Complex BI analyses can be run without impacting production workloads.
