Dell EMC announced that Just Dial, a local search engine which provides Online Shopping services, has successfully completed its implementation of new all-flash storage, elastic cloud storage and data protection solutions from Dell EMC. Just Dial selected Dell EMC to help it gain better control of its IT infrastructure through consolidation, virtualization and automation.
The Dell EMC XtremIO all-flash storage platform alongwith ECS and Avamar deployments will help Just Dial significantly increase application performance and efficiency over a traditional SAN platform.
Enhanced Performance: Just Dial completed an evaluation of XtremIO where it observed performance gains of 60% and a reduction of database query time by 30-40%, leading to faster response times, which is essential for any search engine.
Reduced Footprint: Deploying XtremIO solid state storage will help Just Dial save on electricity and cooling costs. XtremIO’s storage density will also help reduce the company’s data center footprint.
Lower Costs: EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS), will help lower storage costs by up to 80% by reducing the storage footprint, improved disk utilization and lower management and administration overhead.
Database Protection: Dell EMC Avamar, which is used by Just Dial in multiple locations, will help ensure protection of its database. Data restore is faster and back-up time is reduced compared to traditional back-up systems. By moving to Avamar, Just Dial was able to reduce administration costs by almost 90%, requiring fewer IT staff to manage 24/7 back-up operations.
Mahesh Pawar, VP – Infrastructure and Operations, Just Dial revealed, “By adopting the Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) and Avamar backup solutions, we have seen significant business and operational ease in managing our core infrastructure setup.”
Syed Masroor, Sales Director – Flash Storage Sales India at EMC, Dell EMC, added, “In today’s constantly evolving and fast-paced world it is important to be efficient at all times without compromising time. With Dell EMC’s XtremIO all-flash array, ECS object storage and Avamar, it is possible for organizations to reduce their costs, increase their performance efficiency and at the same time not compromise on time or security. We are delighted with the implementation at Just Dial to help them achieve their goals.”
