‘Andra Selects Pure Storage for French Radioactive Waste Management’

French National Agency for Radioactive Waste Management, Andra, has chosen Pure Storage, Inc. to upgrade its IT infrastructure. The decision was made to ensure a secure, reliable, and resilient storage platform that complies with sustainability regulations and requirements.

Andra, responsible for managing dangerous radioactive substances, needed a modern solution to protect its sensitive data from cyber-attacks. Energy efficiency and sustainability were also key priorities for the organization as they aimed to dispel misconceptions about the environmental impact of nuclear waste management.

By adopting Pure Storage’s platform, Andra has been able to extend the lifespan of its storage hardware and gain flexibility in storage management. The benefits include a 20% reduction in energy consumption, an 80% decrease in physical footprint, and a 4-ton reduction in CO2 emissions per year. The Evergreen architecture from Pure Storage enables non-disruptive software and hardware upgrades, helping Andra manage the product lifecycle effectively.

Furthermore, Pure1, the cloud-based storage management platform, empowers Andra with predictive analytics for proactive responses to dynamic conditions. The reliable and secure data platform from Pure Storage ensures minimal downtime and enhances data protection strategies against cyber-attacks with immutable SafeMode snapshots.

Looking towards the future, Andra has chosen Pure Storage with a long-term perspective, benefiting from always-on access to innovation without the need for repurchases or downtime. Olivier Tardy, head of infrastructure and operations at Andra’s DSIN, expressed confidence in Pure Storage’s support for their environmental initiatives and digital storage goals.

The collaboration between Andra and Pure Storage highlights the importance of embracing modern, sustainable solutions in critical sectors like radioactive waste management. With a focus on security, reliability, and sustainability, Andra is setting a standard for environmentally-conscious practices in the industry.
