FlashArrays Reduce Client Provisioning Time


Customer:

Afrihost started life in South Africa in 2000 as a web design and internet service provider for small and medium businesses. As it grew, the ISP, brainchild of three close friends, added ADSL broadband internet connections, domain services and more, becoming one of the top three ADSL providers in South Africa and winning MyBroadband’s ISP of the Year four years running. The company has evolved into a managed service provider, while also building one of the largest ADSL networks in the region. Despite its phenomenal growth, Afrihost has built a solid reputation as the most affordable service provider in Africa, relying on storage efficiencies to deliver both low cost and high performance.

Challenges:

  • Exponential customer growth on slowing HDD storage arrays
  • High $/TB cost for RAID10 configuration due to huge VM load on HDD arrays
  • Customers have no long term contracts - outstanding service is critical to company

Use Case:

Business Transformation:

  • Provisioning time cut from 30 minutes to one minute
  • No support calls, five nines reliability

IT Transformation:

“We can monitor performance and capacity easily - we can get information from Pure Storage arrays in seconds. Traditional storage would take us minutes or hours.”
