"We wanted a 'set-it-and-forget-it' product that would give our distributed organization tier zero storage performance, without a tier zero price tag. We evaluated all the available storage options and vendors on the market -- no one even came close to meeting our requirements like Pure Storage," said Ut. "FlashArray smoked the competition in terms of the performance gains we needed to support our VDI rollout, and offered rapid time to deployment, simplified storage management, and a scale out/scale up architecture at cost parity with mechanical disk and hybrids solutions. The decision to go with Pure Storage was a no-brainer."
The effects of SSE's FlashArray implementation on its data infrastructure were immediate and tangible: the company is now achieving up to 12:1 data reduction and sub-millisecond latency -- not just for VDI, but across all its performance enterprise applications and workloads, including Microsoft Exchange, SQL databases, file shares, and virtual applications.
"Everything is easier with Pure Storage. They have created more than just a great product -- they've created a great company. The Pure support team makes me feel like we're all in it together, and treats every user and application in our environment like a first-class citizen," said Ut.
With support from Pure Storage, SSE has now successfully rolled out its VDI deployment -- over 250 desktops nationwide -- without added IT complexity, and has realized significant operational and storage cost savings by replacing its legacy disk arrays. And FlashArray's resilient, scalable architecture and non-disruptive capacity upgrades will support future growth to SSE's organization and virtual desktop infrastructure at scale.
"FlashArray has delivered on its promises in every dimension and exceeded our very high expectations -- we're beyond thrilled with the performance benefits," said Ut. "When our users don't have to think about IT, they are able to sell more tickets and put better players on the ice. This is not only a huge win for me, but also for our employees, players and fans."
"FlashArray is a perfect solution for companies like SSE that are implementing or expanding a VDI deployment, because it delivers the performance, resiliency, scalability and efficiency that VDI requires," said
