IAA Puts its Vehicle Marketplace in the Fast Lane

When IAA needed to fuel sustainable growth on a whole new scale, the auto auctioneer chose Pure Storage FlashArray//XL for its performance and efficiency.


IAA facilitates the sale of total-loss, damaged, and low-value vehicles. Its 24/7 digital marketplace makes auto auctions fast, reliable, and simple for buyers and sellers around the world. Known for helping sellers close deals quickly while keeping costs to a minimum, IAA could not risk reputational damage from IT downtime. With Pure Storage FlashArray//XL, IAA can scale at pace, with non-disruptive upgrades and reliable storage that delivers 24/7 services to every customer.

Slow processes and response times began to affect IAA's digital customer platform. Business growth and application enhancements required more storage headroom and stability. In addition, IAA’s acquisition by heavy equipment auctioneer Ritchie Bros., and the subsequent creation of its new parent company—leading, omnichannel marketplace RB Global, Inc.—meant its infrastructure would need to fuel growth on a whole new scale.
