Hometrack switches to Pure Storage

By

Property intelligence provider Hometrack Australia has deployed several Pure Storage flash arrays to overcome performance and capacity concerns

Hometrack has enjoyed significant recent growth thanks to a major project for one of the big four banks. Data volumes tripled, and the legacy disk-based storage was affecting response times.

Hometrack's core product is an automated valuation model that promises to deliver property valuations within seconds.

"We were attracted to Pure because it came to the table with a revolutionary product with the highest levels of performance and security at a reasonable price," said Hometrack CTO David Sirr.

"Pure's pre-sales engineers spent a lot of time helping us set up test the solution for our specific needs. This extended to granting us several weeks' access to a FlashArray which we deployed in our infrastructure to perform proof of concept testing prior to making the investment."

The new storage system reduced query transaction time from 300 to 150 milliseconds with no code changes, and achieved a data reduction rate of 4.7:1.

"Thanks to Pure Storage's creative thinking, we structured a deal that allowed us to deploy the latest technology faster. With Pure Storage, it's simply 'more' - more performance, more secure and more reliable," Sirr said.

Other Pure benefits include proactive round-the-clock monitoring for high performance and availability, and maintenance and upgrade policies that make it easier for customers to update FlashArrays as their needs change.

"At a time when local businesses are challenged with accommodating huge stores of data, it's important they're able to expand their storage as their requirements change, without any disruption or unexpected costs," said Pure Storage ANZ managing director Mike Sakalas.

"We're pleased that a leading property market industry customer such as Hometrack Australia has selected Pure Storage to store highly sensitive customer information and drive efficiency throughout its business."
