The City of New Orleans Safeguards Data

The City of New Orleans turned to Pure Storage FlashBlade and FlashArray to get systems back online quickly and securely following a ransomware attack, protecting data against future attacks.


After shutting down hundreds of servers to mitigate damage from a cyberattack, the City of New Orleans needed new IT infrastructure to test, cleanse, and store data. Within days, Pure Storage helped the IT team migrate data to Pure Storage FlashArray NVME and FlashBlade object storage. The new storage lowers risk with fast backup, restore, and data snapshots.
