Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Before working with Pure Storage, we were working with an SP and multi-tier solution. Most of our customers were looking for performance. So, we made the choice to have an all-flash platform with replication. At the time, Pure Storage was the only one to be able to provide some all-flash storage with replication, and replication was mandatory for our customers.

How was the initial setup?

It is quite easy to set up.

What was our ROI?

We have seen a reduction in TCO.
