Pure Storage has announced major additions to its Cloud Data Services portfolio that helps customers deploy hybrid clouds. These solutions enable the portability of applications to and from Amazon Web Services (AWS) with minimal re-architecture and allow customers to leverage public cloud economics for any use case.
Cloud Block Store (CBS) for AWS, delivers hybrid operations for customers by providing consistent data services, resiliency, and bi-directional mobility. Now generally available, CBS is enterprise-grade block storage delivered natively in the public cloud and provides a unified management and consumption experience. Cloud Block Store enables mission-critical applications to run in the cloud seamlessly and makes cloud storage more powerful for web-scale applications.
CloudSnap for Azure
Purity CloudSnap maximizes the cloud’s potential for backup storage with intelligent, efficient data transfer to the cloud. CloudSnap, a cloud backup technology-enabled with AWS, is now available as a multi-cloud solution and can be leveraged in Microsoft Azure. Additionally, CloudSnap offers rapid recovery on-premises, or in the cloud to Cloud Block Store, to help customers meet demanding service level agreements (SLAs) and compliance policies with array and volume-level recovery that is both easy and cost-effective.
With these significant additions to its portfolio, Pure aims to match its customers’ vision as the majority of enterprises embrace a hybrid cloud model with data that lives both on-and-off-premises.
Expanded Pure Storage FlashArray product line
Pure Storage has also announced that it has expanded its Pure Storage FlashArray product line.
FlashArray//C, the industry’s first capacity-optimized all-flash array, is built to bring consistent all-flash performance with tier one reliability at disk economics. DirectMemory Cache, a combination of Purity and Intel Optane storage class memory, provides FlashArray//X customers with a software-based accelerant that delivers dramatic performance improvement for applications that require the ultimate in high-performance storage.
Like all products in the FlashArray family line, FlashArray//C provides a no-compromise enterprise experience built for >99.9999 percent availability, Pure1 cloud data management, API automation, AI-driven predictive support, and is built from the ground up to be Evergreen with non-disruptive hardware and software upgrades and no data migrations. The FlashArray//C60 delivers up to 4.2 petabytes of effective capacity in a sleek and compact design, with full-enterprise software services, Pure1 cloud management, and data portability, and 100 percent NVMe flash. Customers will benefit from 99.9999 percent availability, 5:1 average data reduction, and 10:1 total efficiency, reducing the amount of storage customers need to purchase and manage. FlashArray//C is generally available now and optimized for next-generation QLC media.
Modern database and analytics requirements have increased customer requirements for storage performance. Pure Storage DirectMemory Modules plug directly into FlashArray//X70 and //X90 to speed up OLTP and OLAP results instantly, allowing customers to continue innovating without downtime or configuration required. Pure’s DirectMemory Modules are powered by DirectMemory Cache software and Intel Optane storage class memory, to provide customers with a performance boost, so latency-sensitive databases and enterprise applications can act faster, with a 25 to 50 percent latency reduction and up to 25 percent lower CPU utilization for greater compute efficiency and potentially lower software license costs.
Mission-critical applications require a strong combination of memory, CPU, servers and accelerated storage to provide enterprises with more levels of insight and faster time to resolution so Pure customers are able to resolve problems faster for their own customers. DirectMemory Cache can accelerate the performance of critical applications by 2x, lowering latency as much as 50 percent. DirectMemory Cache provides storage-class memory acceleration to existing customers, with no disruption and no configuration required.
