Pure Storage enables South Korea's fastest growing internet-only bank to save nearly $500,000 in disk purchasing costs, and over $120,000 in data center footprint and energy costs

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Pure Storage® (NYSE: PSTG), the IT pioneer that delivers the world's most advanced data storage technology and services, today announced that Toss Bank, the fastest growing Internet-only bank in South Korea, is leveraging Pure Storage's all-flash storage platform to deliver reliable, always-on digital financial services to its growing customer base.

Customer Challenge:

As the fastest-growing internet-only bank, acquiring over 8 million customers in just two years, and ranked #1 in South Korea on Forbes' The World's Best Banks 2023 list, Toss Bank is disrupting the antiquated banking sector by providing consumers with a portfolio of secure and reliable digital-only financial services.

For Toss Bank, customer data is central to driving efficiency, improving its customer experience, and mitigating risk.
