Man AHL sees significant savings from the simplicity of operation
The company benefits from more than FlashBlade’s raw performance, and the Pure Storage plug-and-play capabilities add to operational efficiency.

Challenges

One of the firm’s highest priorities was delivering a robust and ever-more-performant technology platform as a means of optimizing the performance and productivity of its quants and technologists. The demands on technology infrastructure at the firm were significant

  • Storage capacity was doubling every 18 months.
  • Legacy storage architecture was not adequately supporting developers and quantitative researchers.
  • Simulations required greater IOPS and bandwidth than legacy storage could provide.
  • The business was unable to fully leverage new technologies such as Spark and AI.

Results

Business Transformation

  • Quantitative researchers can now run more simulations faster, accelerating time-to-market for new investment models and raising the probability of improved returns for investors.

IT Transformation

  • Up to 600,000 IOPS and 6GBs bandwidth provide more than sufficient processing power for the most demanding simulations.
  • Quantitative researchers benefit from 10x-20x processing improvement.
  • Highly scalable Pure FlashBlade™ architecture provides an on-demand path for future growth in capacity.
