IMPROVING CUSTOMER SATISFACTION WITH FLASH

We knew ROI was important for this Financial client. With this in mind, we demonstrated how HPE 3PAR would provide a more efficient storage solution, with even greater returns. It was the always-on, high-performance storage they needed.

Next, we migrated from the old to the new platform seamlessly, without impacting the business. Similarly, we deployed an additional flash data storage array in an overseas office with equal precision. And we managed the end-to-end design, shipping and installation, all from the UK.

For us downtime isn’t an option. We need to resolve any issues immediately. Now, with your global support, we have that confidence.

STORAGE THAT SCALES WITH BUSINESS DEMANDS

The new flash data storage solution has made a significant difference to business and IT operations. For example, storage performance and responsiveness improved across the board. The IT Production DBA team noticed the difference straight away. Now, Batch operations run faster than ever. And this has a beneficial knock-on effect. Different teams, services and projects now have additional capacity needed to work faster.

Furthermore, they can dig much deeper into data. By plugging API’s into analysis tools they get insight in real time . And because all areas are fully supported by CANCOM, their IT team is free to switch their focus to innovation.

We have per-second visibility into our storage array performance, which was not previously possible. Disk backup times decreased by 33% and snapshots of data can be created of any point in time.
