4 legacy racks to 1: Flash arrays for footprint, services consolidation

Study: All-Flash Helps Universities Meet Growth Demands


“How do we continue to grow our environment, expand our offerings, and, at the same time, consolidate services?” North Carolina State University IT Manager Patrick Williams found himself asking this very question.   

With limited IT resources and budget, one of NCSU’s biggest challenges was the continued demand for growth—with a consumption rate of 30% year over year. One of many major factors driving that growth was NCSU’s going from bare metal infrastructure to mostly virtual.

Tune into this study to see how NCSU achieved a 75% reduction in storage footprint by consolidating arrays (4 racks down to 1) and an 80% reduction in data center power with an all-flash array family that enabled the university to grow as demand required—and all within their limited budget.
