Pure Storage has over a decade of experience meeting the challenges of data and storage through better software design for your platform. A pre-eminent leader in redefining and creating a class of storage in all-flash media, Pure is future-proofing its capabilities of simplicity, performance and ease of use for the next generation of technology consumption in the cloud.

Jack Hogan, Pure’s Vice President of Technology Strategy, is focused on the company’s cloud go-to-market working with some of the largest software and managed service providers bringing access to cloud technologies on a global basis. “We’re partnering with our customers to drive the simplicity and disruption of access for storage,” pledges Hogan. “Underpinning everything we do is an all-flash technology layer that allows us to achieve sub-millisecond level response times to better manage ERP workloads down from hours to minutes.”

A Modern Data Experience

In today’s world, data is the new fuel, the growth engine. However, being able to effectively access and leverage insights from that data is one of the biggest challenges companies now face. “At Pure we’re focused on bringing all of that data together for what we call a modern data experience,” reveals Hogan. “With as much as 75% of a company’s data going unutilized, it’s vital to get a centralized view. We’re aiming to solve that problem with a suite of solutions and services extended to both the on-premise data center and all the way to the edge via the cloud, offering a centralized storage platform and storage plane.”

Pure & Simple

The Purity operating system operates across all of Pure’s platforms which are controlled via SaaS with Pure1. “Pure1 changes everything,” explains Hogan. “It offers workload and capacity planning, analytics, tech support and more. You get self-driving storage with full-stack, AI-powered data storage management and monitoring. Pure1 allows companies to see where their data is in all venues, whether that be in different tiers of storage in an individual data center, or across different data centers, or even across different clouds. A big part of what Pure is doing is creating that interconnected tissue of how those different data points can come together as one central data hub.”

Group Management: Superior compliance in construction

Group Management’s Steve Cressey on a uniquely collaborative partnership with Mercury Engineering and almost 15 years of compliant construction projects

Group Management Electrical Surveys is a long-standing and vital partner to Mercury Engineering. The company offers an innovative suite of electrical inspection, test and documentation services to ensure compliance in complex major construction projects for many of the UK and EU's leading companies. Utilising in-house cutting-edge solutions and its highly competent and experienced engineers, Group Management provides everything from electrical inspection and testing to thermal imaging surveys, QA/QC management, torque compliance, technical support, DSEAR compliance and electrical installation condition reports.

“No project can achieve handover without the correct documentation and safety critical electrical certification in place,” says Managing Director Steve Cressey. “Our services ensure that project critical documentation and certification can be correctly produced in an efficient, cost effective manner, which makes Group Management an important part of any construction project.” 

Cressey joined the business in 2009, bringing strong and incisive leadership to Group Management, with decades of industry experience giving him a unique understanding of the design through to handover construction process. He has stewarded the business’ partnership with Mercury since its inception and describes it as uniquely collaborative.  

“Our relationship with Mercury Engineering stretches back many years. We partnered with Mercury  on our first Data Centre project together in Watford in 2007, and since then the relationship has gone from strength to strength,” says Cressey.

“The partnership is longstanding, and we’ve built an incredibly strong working relationship. Partnering with Mercury, who are an innovative, cutting-edge technology provider, means we must constantly improve our services offering. We strive to be the best in what we do, and Mercury can trust we will be efficient in delivering on time, on budget, to achieve a successful handover that meets both Mercury’s and the end clients’ future needs.”

Group Management has since successfully completed more than 30 Data Centre projects throughout the EU as Mercury’s preferred electrical compliance partner. The relationship has also seen Group Management partner with Mercury Engineering on four brand-new hospitals in the UK and Ireland, key pharmaceutical projects and a number of commercial and leisure spaces. 

“To ensure the continued success and growth of Group Management we always discuss projects with key clients and their teams, take feedback on the performance of both our business and our individuals, and in turn use that to improve our services,” Cressey says. 

“The professional development of our employees is essential to our success. All our employees are encouraged to continue their education, to further develop their skills through additional training, and that in turn drives better service and a superior product for our clients. We now offer four more services to Mercury than when the partnership began, which has helped spur Group Management’s growth and success within the wider market.”
