In today’s fast-paced business environment, organizations are grappling with the challenge of IT cost optimization; that is, balancing burgeoning data demands with today’s constrained budgets. While many IT leaders have focused on obvious areas to save, like system acquisition costs and maintenance charges, their more savvy peers have begun looking at hidden IT costs. Potential savings abound in areas like staffing: If systems are easier to install, run, and upgrade, then more expensive, specialized talent isn’t required. And IT staff can be shifted to more value-add projects, without the need for additional staff costs. Likewise, energy and space costs can be greatly reduced with more efficient systems that use less power and data center space, especially in data storage. Spiraling public cloud costs have many IT leaders reconsidering earlier “cloud-first” mandates in favor of a rationalized, hybrid cloud approach. And the ultimate hidden cost—system downtime—is something every seasoned IT professional tries to minimize.

Nowhere is the potential for IT savings greater than in secondary data storage, where aging, complex hard disk drive (HDD)-based systems struggle to meet contemporary requirements and weigh organizations down with hidden costs. As data volumes surge, traditional repository storage systems relying on outdated mechanical HDDs not only introduce unacceptable latency into operations but also heighten the risk of costly, unplanned downtime. Concerns over system reliability, guarding against system failure, and the cost of maintaining complex, outdated systems significantly raise the total cost of ownership (TCO) of legacy HDD systems, despite their seemingly lower acquisition costs.

Pure Storage offers an innovative, proven solution that meets the IT cost optimization challenge: a unified all-flash storage platform at acquisition prices comparable to those of traditional HDD—but with significantly lower TCO. Let’s explore how Pure Storage delivers all-flash performance without compromise, even for secondary storage use cases.
