Pure Storage and Waitrose

Waitrose Turns to Flash Storage to Run Demand Forecasting Application

Major UK retail chain sees positive impacts on its business supply chain and order fulfillment.

Summary

Waitrose, a major retail chain in the UK, directly drives order fulfillment with an in-house demand forecasting application. With the Pure Storage FlashArrays, Waitrose doesn’t have to over-spec on capacity, which means it has much more useable storage space. The demand forecast application is now running on much more efficient hardware, and able to leverage the amount of capacity Waitrose wants to dedicate. The Pure Storage FlashArrays also allowed Waitrose to reduce the size of its datacentre footprint by 75%. There’s more rack space to take advantage of, and it needs less power to run.

Challenges

Waitrose formerly used a storage system that had such poor performance in terms of IOPS that Waitrose had to over-spec on capacity and had the following challenges.

  • Running an in-house demand forecasting application to track data and drive order fulfillment.
  • Inefficient capacity usage with IBM V7000 storage system, with 80TB of unused space.
  • Incumbent disk array only met IOPS requirement through capacity overspecification (by 400%).

Results

Business Transformation

Waitrose uses all-flash storage to run a crucial demand forecasting application, which actively impacts the supermarket business’ supply chain and order fulfillment.

IT Transformation

  • Increased overall flash storage performance matches IOPS requirements.
  • Achieved three to one compression ratio on non-production data, and just under three to one data ratio with production data.
  • Reduced datacentre footprint size by 75%.
