Global Financial Services Company Extends Partnership with Violin Memory
SANTA CLARA, CA: Violin Memory, an all flash storage platform solutions provider, has completed the deployment of flash storage platform solutions for the second phase data center build-out of a major global financial services company. The company, which previously deployed Violin 6000 All Flash Arrays in the first phase, opted to install Violin Flash Storage Platform (FSP) 7300 for second phase extension. The FSP 7300 delivers an integrated all-flash storage solution that ensures business continuity and enhances the performance for Tier 1 primary storage workloads. Violin’s “Pay-as-You-Grow” model customers are permitted to pay according to their business needs was the key financial factor behind the second phase extension.
Violin’s novel business model enabled the customer to fully deploy FSP 7300 array in its maximum capacity and also offered two major benefits. Firstly, Violin can activate additional VIMM memory modules already on the array, thereby, upgrading the data center capacity almost immediately, for customers. Secondly, capacity upgradation does not require any changes, downtime, interruption and is non disruptive. The second phase also features the storage workloads on disk, being replaced by Flash Storage Platform solutions to improve responsiveness to equity traders.
Delighted to be selected as the storage partner again, Kevin DeNuccio, CEO of Violin Memory remarks, “With the critical need for their analytics to be bulletproof, they have deployed the most reliable and fastest storage underlying their trading and investment decisions, and utilizing Violin's flash storage foundation equates to money in a financial trade.”
