Data#3 says that as legacy storage systems began to prove limiting, Victoria University “recognised the potential impacts of storage constraints to future digital transformation initiatives”.
Following a successful tender response from Data#3 and Pure Storage, the university elected to proceed with Data#3’s recommended all-flash arrays security solution.
According to Data#3, with the recommended solution known for “performance, reliability and agility”, the university also “sought the ease of management and fast scalability provided through the recommended approach”.
“Our storage had served us well for over a decade, but it was aging, we had capacity issues; we took the opportunity to review it and to look at new capabilities going forward. We needed something easier to manage and maintain,” said Victoria University Infrastructure Services Manager, Manuel Bervanakis.
“Everyone thinks storage is a given, but we must make sure it is reliable. Pure offers 99.9999 percent reliability, and with Data#3’s help we made sure we had a platform we could have faith in. We know we can trust it,” Bervanakis said.
“Data#3 and Pure were extremely professional. They had the skills required to take on the work - not only commissioning but decommissioning equipment – and they went out of their way to make sure we were satisfied. The Data#3 presales team made sure things were going well, they were on standby if we needed extra help: they were skilled, knowledgeable, and great to deal with,” Bervanakis concluded.
Data#3 Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Laurence Baynham said: “Data#3’s work with Victoria University is another great example of technology enabling positive outcomes for education. Ensuring strong digital foundations is paramount, today more than ever, and the world-class storage solution delivered by Data#3 will help reinforce Victoria University’s student outcomes, and overall pathway to digital transformation.”
