Mumbai: Global payments provider Euronet Worldwide has deployed Pure Storage data solutions. The deployment is part of Euronet Worldwide’s ongoing efforts to modernize underlying IT infrastructure for its digital payment systems in India.
This upgrade has helped Euronet meet the exponential demand for digital payments during the pandemic-enforced lockdowns. The migration to Pure Storage has also dramatically reduced Euronet’s energy consumption, helping it to meet sustainability goals.
Euronet’s data centres process a wide variety of payment transactions including digital-to-cash, cash-to-digital, card-based, dynamic digital codes, cross-border, multiple currencies, and real-time settlements.
The lockdowns during the Covid-19 pandemic caused a rapid increase in digital transactions and instant payments. To meet this demand, Euronet embarked on a project to upgrade its underlying IT infrastructure including critical storage systems.
The company selected Pure Storage for its performance, lower energy consumption and storage upgrade program. Pure’s unique Evergreen // Forever storage program provides Euronet with worry-free storage management over the next few years through non-disruptive upgrades to Pure’s latest technologies.
“Pure Storage stood out with their latest NVMe-based flash storage systems to meet our requirements. They were aware of our dependency on higher performance, commitment to reducing our data centre footprint and zest for driving our customer needs with great reliability,” said Pranay Jhaveri, MD – India and South Asia, Euronet Worldwide.
“The transparency they brought to the table by bundling all licenses, further helped us to get a better view of the total costs of ownership. Together with faster data storage and data protection, their flash systems enabled us to keep our customers happy while keeping an eye on future demands,” added Jhaveri.
“Adoption of private cloud architecture along with the all-flash technology from Pure helped us differentiate from our competition, enabling us to deliver scale, reliability and speed to manage our current and future ever growing transaction volumes and deliver an awesome experience to our customers,” mentioned Jhaveri.
“Euronet is playing an important role in India’s digital economy, and we are delighted to be able to support them on this journey. The demands on Euronet’s network and the importance of reliability and uptime shows, how Pure’s modern data solutions can meet the most challenging environments,” said Ramanujam Komanduri, Country Manager – Pure Storage India.
“Our unique business innovations like Evergreen also provide Euronet with upgrades to all our innovations over the next few years giving them the stability to plan for business growth,” Komanduri.
