Storage Array Results Beyond Expectations


Customer:

First Rate delivers investment performance reporting at the start of each business day to its clients. When unexplained delays started occurring in the preparation of reports for one of its clients, First Rate needed a solution. It found it in all-flash arrays from Pure Storage, which has allowed First Rate to consistently meet the standards needed to provide timely strategic reporting while also slashing operating costs.

Challenges:

  • Thanks to greater consistency in the on-time availability of critical investment performance reports, client satisfaction has increased. In addition, SLAs have been strengthened, and are now offered to more clients thanks to vastly improved and predictable storage performance.
