Using FlashArray to Acquire Business Information


Customer:
Acindar, a 76-year old, market-leading Argentinean steel company, needed to make a technological leap to increase efficiency in its production processes. To achieve this goal, the IT department determined that it should replace its existing storage platform with an all-flash solution. Through the implementation of Pure Storage FlashArray//M20, Acindar improved application response times, reduced latency to less than one millisecond, and simplified storage management — and ultimately obtained key business information in real-time. 

Challenges:

  • Expand storage capacity and application performance.
  • Have an easy-to-manage storage platform.
  • Reduce completion time for production reports. 

Use Case:

  • System – Microsoft® Windows® Server 2008/2012/2016
  • Database – SQL Server 2012/2014
  • Virtualization software – VMware® vSphere® 6.5
  • Production – Custom apps used in production 

Business Transformation: 
With the implementation of Pure Storage FlashArray//M20, Acindar realized a number of key business and IT benefits, including producing reports in only one minute, reducing by up to 20 minutes the previous report process. In addition, the simplicity and ease in managing the storage platform has allowed the IT staff to take on new challenges. 

IT Transformation:

  • Storage platform now has a raw capacity of 10 TB and a compression ratio of 3.5:1, which delivers an effective storage capacity of 35 TB.
  • Latency is now 0.36 milliseconds and 8,500 IOPs.
  • Pure Storage reduced the time it took to run production reports by 5x. 

"The interface is very intuitive and friendly. Its configuration and set-up were very simple. What's more, we are truly satisfied with Pure's proactive support."
