IDC predicts that by 2021, 90% of enterprises globally will build their IT strategies around a mix of on-premises private clouds, public clouds, and their existing platforms to accommodate the increasingly diverse set of requirements of their modern applications.
These organisations require a hybrid cloud strategy built on best of breed technology that delivers unified management, interoperability, flexibility, agility, and performance to be successful and avoid complexity, higher costs, and data mobility challenges.
AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any datacentre, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience.
The validated integration of Pure Storage’s FlashBlade with AWS Outposts means AWS customers can leverage a low-latency, high-performance unified fast file and object platform with native Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) capabilities in tandem with AWS services, APIs, and tools – all with simplified management and container capabilities in their own datacentre.
This will enable use cases such as artificial intelligence (AI), modern analytics, DevOps, rapid restore, and next-generation applications that require real-time response and high-throughput, in addition to satisfying data sovereignty, compliance, and local-processing requirements.
