Pure Extends Market Leadership with new Purity Software and Third Generation Capacity Optimized Flash Platform, Unifying File Support and Ransomware Protection across FlashBlade and FlashArray
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Pure Storage (NYSE: PSTG), the IT pioneer that delivers storage as-a-service in a multi-cloud world, announced enhancements to its unified storage portfolio, extending its enterprise storage market leadership by expanding into new markets and verticals. The updates to the flagship Purity software for FlashBlade and FlashArray accelerate Windows applications, deliver ransomware protection across file, block and native cloud-based apps, and make hybrid storage for both departmental and data center workloads obsolete with a third generation FlashArray//C all-QLC platform.
The latest updates, delivered through Pure's Evergreen subscription model, further the company's vision for a Modern Data Experience™. The key enhancements are:
Comprehensive File Portfolio Redefines Performance and Simplicity Across Ever-Broadening Use Cases
Comprehensive Ransomware Protection and Security across File, Block, and Cloud-Based Apps
Improved Disaster Recovery with ActiveCluster over Fibre Channel: ActiveCluster™ delivers stretch clustering solutions for critical applications over any fabric. ActiveCluster is integrated wit Pure1 Cloud Mediator, which removes the need to manage a cumbersome third-site witness and enables a third recovery site to be added anywhere in the world.
Breakthrough Tier 1 Application Performance: As the first to market with NVMe over Fabrics, Pure continues to accelerate its market leadership as it delivers an all-NVMe architecture for Flash, Direct Memory Modules, replication, and now support for both NVMe over Fibre Channel and Ethernet. Support for NVMe can reduce application latency by up to 50% by reducing latencies to hundreds of microseconds.
Third-Generation of FlashArray//C Makes Hybrid Storage Obsolete: The new releases of FlashArray//C40 and FlashArray//C60 demonstrate Pure's rapid pace of innovation and extend a flash leadership story that is still unmatched in the industry. While other vendors struggle to bring QLC to market, FlashArray//C can now replace legacy disks in deployments of all sizes, ranging from departmental to data center consolidation.
"Pure is named a leader in the recent Gartner Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage Arrays and positioned highest and farthest in both vectors because we are chipping away at the complexity baked into legacy storage that is simply not designed for the digital age. Our vision for a Modern Data Experience empowers organizations to innovate by providing a dynamic, cloud-based storage experience that is flexible, on-demand, and delivered as code." -- Ajay Singh, Chief Product Officer, Pure Storage
