Metito deploys key solutions to boost data centre infrastructure

Metito, a leading global provider of intelligent water management and alternative energy solutions, said it has signed up US-based Pure Storage to deploy its key technology to improve the performance of its business-critical applications.

Headquartered in Mountain View, California, Pure Storage is an IT pioneer that develops all-flash data storage hardware and software products.

Metito’s previous IT infrastructure solution, a mix of legacy spinning disk drives, had become a limiting factor for performance, and the larger technology stack.

Commenting on the critical role of storage, Prashant Menon, Metito IT Infrastructure and Support Services Manager, said: “Any network or server outage can be resolved with no lasting impact, but storage is critical in the data center. When it fails, you are likely left with a lasting impact.”

The company is continuously assessing and developing its IT infrastructure, particularly storage, to continue leading the industry at a time where processes and facilities are more rapidly digitizing, he stated.

A six-month procurement process, focused on finding a solution that would deliver performance, predictability and manageability, culminated in Metito selecting Pure Storage as a key technology within its data center infrastructure.

Since switching to Pure, Menon and his team have seen dramatic improvements to IT and end-user performance. They have also reduced backup times of critical data from 2-3 days with the previous solution, down to just 10-12 hours with Pure.

“With the integration of the new storage solution from Pure Storage, a lot of the session timeouts disappeared, allowing a more efficient use of time - users no longer have to restart sessions and/or re-input lost data. We have also achieved a 30 percent improvement in application performance throughput which has resulted in increased productivity and a marked improvement in the overall user-experience,” noted Menon.

A leading global provider of intelligent water management and alternative energy solutions, Metito serves around 1500 users and has over 3,000 projects and experience in over 46 countries.

Additionally, with Pure1 - the US firm’s cloud-based storage management solution - the Metito IT team can now easily view all key performance metrics from a single dashboard.

This has enabled them to move to a more proactive management mode, ensuring there is no downtime due to capacity constraints or drop in availability of business-critical applications he noted.

Pure Storage Middle East Regional Director Assaad El Saadi said: 'As organizations in the region continue to digitally transform, something that has been accelerated in the current climate, it is essential that they shed rigid legacy infrastructures that are a drain on IT resources and budgets and impact employee performance and efficiency.'

'At Pure, we are delivering a modern data experience that enables our customers, like Metito, to transform their IT departments, and wider organizations, into true centers of innovation that can serve as catalysts for business growth,' he added.
