Pure Storage recently announced enhancements to its unified storage portfolio, thereby expanding into new markets and verticals. The updates to the flagship Purity software for FlashBlade and FlashArray accelerate Windows applications, provide ransomware protection across file, block, and native cloud-based applications, and make hybrid storage for departmental and data center workloads obsolete through a third-generation FlashArray//C all-QLC platform.
Pure Storage is an all-flash enterprise storage provider that enables the broad deployment of flash in data centers. Its technologies enable Software as a Service (SaaS) organizations, cloud service providers, and enterprise and public sector users to deliver secure data to power their DevOps and modern analytics environments in a multi-cloud environment. The vendor’s platforms accelerate random I/O-intensive applications such as server virtualization, desktop virtualization (VDI), database (OLTP, rich analytics/OLAP, SQL, and NoSQL), and cloud computing. Pure Storage also enables users to adopt next-generation technologies, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, to maximize the value of their data. In 2020, Pure Storage acquired Portworx for $370 million.
The key enhancements to Pure Storage’s unified storage portfolio are:
- The comprehensive file portfolio redefines performance and simplicity across ever-broadening use cases.
- Comprehensive ransomware protection and security across file, block, and cloud-based applications.
- Improved disaster recovery with ActiveCluster over Fibre Channel.
- Breakthrough tier 1 application performance.
In a press statement, Ajay Singh, Chief Product Officer at Pure Storage, said, “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.”
FlashBlade and FlashArray are now both bolstered by SafeMode snapshots, providing a complete portfolio of protection tools to ensure data is always safe and easily recoverable. Additionally, FlashBlade’s new Cross-Protocol File Security design allows access control interoperability between SMB and NFS users while preserving access control lists for both, simultaneously complying with federal security mandates.
