Hong Kong Maxim's Group has deployed IBM's Flash Storage solution to support its future data demands and improve cost efficiency.
With the deployment, Hong Kong Maxim's Group has become the first company in the Hong Kong food and beverage sector to stadardize its flash storage infrastructure.
The company is using big data to monitor and optimize the operations of its 1,200 outlets across Greater China and Asia.
Using data-driven insights, the company is seeking to understand customers' changing needs and behaviors and alter its operations accordingly.
The group's rising transaction volumes are expected to contribute to a fivefold growth in data storage over the next three years to over 300TB.
To accommodate this demand, IBM Flash Storage was selected to meet storage growth, improve data reliability and simplify records management. The solution deployed for the company allows up to 500,000 input-output operations per second (IOPS), as well as a 5:1 data reduction capability.
“Data will continue to fuel the future success of Hong Kong Maxim’s Group. As customer and market needs evolve, we need to become more responsive and agile,” Hong Kong Maxim's Group director of IT Louis Mah said.
“Reliable, high-performance storage like IBM Flash Storage will enable us to scale our operations and meet these needs. More importantly, it gives us the flexibility and freedom to scale and enter new markets with confidence.”
