Online Gaming Platform Provider
An online gaming customer had recently rolled out a quantity of 2U Servers from a “white box” Server vendor, that would readily accept generic fast Intel/Samsung SSDs. They’d reasoned that running several 2U devices filled with cheap SSDs would be cheaper than a dedicated Storage device from a Tier 1 vendor.
However, when faced with their quote, we reviewed it and were able to offer a more efficient solution. The solution we proposed was based around HPE 3PAR. This gives a significantly faster service at a similar price point and is the solution they subsequently went on to purchase.
