Improving Database Transactions by 4x


Customer:

YouGov’s mission is built on the premise that the more people are able to participate in the decisions made by the institutions that serve them, the better these decisions will be. Institutions come to YouGov to find out the beliefs, behaviours and brand opinions of the people they serve via online surveys managed by YouGov. But to enable people to participate YouGov needed to make sure it was easy for them to take surveys. YouGov saw incomplete surveys by panellists when the speed at which survey questions were served up from the database slowed, due to inadequate storage performance. Today with Pure Storage installed, surveys are 80% faster at the storage level and abandon rates have fallen.

Challenges:

  • Ensure fast system response times for panelists.
  • Manage storage requirements of two large databases (terabyte scale).
  • Provide faster turnaround of survey results following election debates.

Use Case:

  • Database – MongoDB

Business Transformation

  • Faster response for panellists, quicker insight into survey data

IT Transformation

  • Pure Storage FlashArray achieving 3:3:1 data reduction
  • 658GB in shared space
  • 3.19TB, using 2.31TB at the moment, 1.67TB is unique data
“Pure Storage’s solution allows us to provide a more consistent service to the analysis staff, which previously could be very disruptive and cause user frustration. We are a lot more consistent and predictable now; I haven’t had a problem since we went live in January. Previously, there was a download performance issue every week”
Nick Carter, Head of Infrastructure and System Operations, YouGov
