University of Bath
Small footprint & big possibilities thanks to game-changing storage solutionDownload the case study
Presented with the challenges of an ageing spinning disk storage system, which included escalating maintenance costs and increasing failure rates, the University of Bath instigated a Proof of Concept (PoC) to make sure it found a best-fit storage solution. Wanting to explore the options that were available on the market, and what different platforms had to offer, the university called in Proact to gather together solutions from a range of vendors.
PoC tested which technologies could meet the university’s requirements, how they could be used and how they could affect
Purity is eliminating the need for mirrors and always-on availability groups.
The Pure arrays can work as part of a hybrid cloud strategy and could act as a staging post when cloud migration happens
The university’s SAN storage was no longer fit for purpose – maintenance costs were rising and failure rates were increasing. The University of Bath wanted to determine a true best-fit for its storage needs.
The University of Bath instigated a Proof of Concept that would look at four different vendor technologies. By analysing performance, availability, efficiency, system longevity and cost, the team was confident that Pure Storage was the best option. Now the Pure arrays are successfully underpinning the university’s databases.
Everything has been easier because we’ve had a partner we can trust at our side. Proact has always done exactly as it has said and we can’t thank them enough for their work so far. We now have systems that go far beyond our initial expectations and we wouldn’t have reached this point without Proact introducing us to Pure during the PoC stage.”
