Univeg Trade Italia Reaps the Benefits of Pure’s All-Flash Storage


Customer:

Univeg Trade Italia is an import/export company that supplies fresh fruits and vegetables to mass-market retailers across Europe. Quick response and quality produce have earned Univeg Trade Italia a reputation of excellence and the trust of its customers. Maintaining the company’s quality standards requires an efficient communication network connecting producers, quality control operators, sales managers and customers. By migrating all services to a Pure Storage® FlashArray, supply-chain communications are lightning fast and VDI performance has improved dramatically, enabling Univeg Trade Italia to enhance customer satisfaction levels and productivity of its employees.

Challenges:

  • Implementation of VDI was negatively perceived by the company’s workforce due to worsened user experience.
  • Messaging system in use posed limits to the company’s needs.
  • Legacy storage was unable to meet operational reliability and performance requirements.
  • Small IT department was dependent on costly third-party services for storage management.

Use Case:

  • VDI – Citrix® XenApp®
  • VSI – VMware® vSphere®
  • Applications – RightFax® (SQL-based), Microsoft® Exchange®

Business Transformation:

  • Employees can now access information much more rapidly from any device, allowing for better quality control and improved sales management. In addition, the need for third-party technical support has been removed.

IT Transformation:

  • All-flash storage exceeded expectations by providing 3-4x faster data processing.
  • 3.71:1 deduplication expanded usable storage capacity.
  • Product simplicity and excellent support greatly improved IT management.

“Now everything is simpler and faster, so we can manage the system autonomously. In the same time it took to call our system integrator and open a ticket, I can now manage the issue by myself. This saves us a lot of time and money.”
