SimpliVity has given us a 2x performance boost for key use cases compared to other solutions we have evaluated. It has enabled our IT infrastructure to realize substantial efficiency, capacity and performance gains whilst reducing the total cost of ownership and space in our data centres.
Head of IT Infrastructure at Red Bull Racing, Matt Bailey commented by saying:
SimpliVity is extremely easy to use, which was an important factor in our consideration of vendors. By taking the complexity out of IT, our team is now able to be creative in places we were limited before. The improvements we are making behind the scenes in IT should pay dividends for our entire team moving forward.
Jesse St Laurent, VP of Product Strategy at SimpliVity commented by saying:
Red Bull Racing is an organization known for its creativity, speed, and innovation. The racing team’s implementation of SimpliVity will help to further separate Red Bull Racing as a leader in Formula One, enabling the team to focus more on the success of its cars and drivers, and less on its IT infrastructure.
