Banking For Success With FlashArray

Banca Popolare di Sondrio, a cooperative joint-stock company (società cooperativa per azioni), is the parent company of the Banca Popolare di Sondrio Banking Group and one of the leading lending institutions in northern Italy and beyond. The bank’s historic mission has led it to develop a very deep relationship with the territory it serves. The bank needed to acquire advanced solutions to save time and resources and protect its investment in technology. In May 2017, Banca Popolare di Sondrio installed Pure Storage FlashArray to simplify management of business complexity and free-up time and resources to dedicate to higher value-added activities.
