Pure Storage and North Ayrshire

FlashArray Increases Speed, Performance and Longevity for North Ayrshire Council

Government agency is empowered to deliver a comprehensive digital transformation strategy that will accelerate the services it provides to council residents.

Summary

North Ayrshire Council’s Pure Storage deployment plays a key role in supporting the organisation’s digital transformation strategy by delivering increased efficiencies, consolidated SANs, and significantly reduced storage-related operating costs. In addition, the speed, simplicity and reliability of its Pure Storage arrays have enabled the server, internet and mobile team to innovate further by giving them back time previously spent maintaining legacy infrastructure.

Customer

As part of its digital strategy, the Council wanted to implement a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) to give its staff the ability to be more mobile and efficient. However, its legacy storage wasn’t able to deliver the required performance consistently.

 

  • Legacy storage had become expensive to maintain and was reaching its end of life.
  • Digital transformation strategy needed better speed and performance from storage.
  • Growing data sets meant storage was nearing capacity.
  • High latency made applications slow to use, wasting time for users and the IT team.

  • Five legacy storage arrays consolidated into two Pure Storage FlashArrays.
  • Through data reduction, North Ayrshire Council has reduced 125TB into 45TB on its primary Pure Storage FlashArray.
