Northdoor helped a Tech distributor diagnose its performance bottleneck and deploy the perfect solution: all-flash storage from the IBM FlashSystem family
Rapid business growth had put real strain on key business systems at the distributor. With Black Friday looming, the company engaged Northdoor to find and remove the bottleneck. By replacing existing enterprise storage with IBM FlashSystem, Northdoor enabled the Client to manage a 5X peak in workload without needing to upgrade its servers.
The client, a technology distributor and specialist service provider, was seeing growing sales volumes which threatened to overwhelm core systems. How could the business prepare for coming sales peaks?
IBM Platinum Business Partner Northdoor analysed the client’s infrastructure and determined that storage was the bottleneck, recommending two IBM FlashSystem arrays to boost performance.
- 5X increase in sales volumes handled seamlessly
- Rapid ROI through increased ability to handle peak sales periods
- Avoided major reinvestment in server hardware by eliminating storage bottleneck
Deployed ahead of the deadline, the all-flash solution enabled the Client to manage a five-times peak in workload seamlessly, providing ROI within one week, and preparing the company for ongoing growth.
