Pure Storage enables customers to choose flash for any workload

Pure Storage, the IT pioneer that delivers the world’s most advanced data storage technology and services, has announced the expansion of its disk replacement-focused Pure//E family of products with the all-new FlashArray//E. 

Delivering on the promise to relieve customers from the constraints of disk, FlashArray//E will expand customers’ options to tackle data growth down to 1PB without the need for frustrating offline archives or expanding expensive disk systems. Earlier this year, Pure Storage launched FlashBlade//E, a scale-out unstructured data repository built to support unified file and object workloads. The launch of FlashArray//E extends the Pure//E family to support unified block and file while providing seamless capacity scaled up to 4PB.

FlashArray//E will enable customers to benefit from an 80% reduction in power and space, 60% lower operational costs and 85% less e-waste compared to disk. With the same phenomenal pricing, operational and energy-saving benefits as FlashBlade//E, there’s a Pure//E family model for all enterprises — no matter the protocol.

“Legacy disk solutions, marked by high costs, massive data centre space requirements and inefficient energy usage, are ill-equipped to support the evolving needs of today’s modern enterprises. Founded on the vision of replacing mechanical storage in favour of an all-flash data centre, Pure Storage — with the expansion of the Pure//E family of products — is eliminating the last remnants of disk in the enterprise,” said Ajay Singh, Chief Product Officer, Pure Storage.

Industry significance

Data continues to grow at a monumental rate. This is unsustainable for large-capacity, price-sensitive workloads leveraging legacy and disk-based storage solutions that are ill-equipped to manage growing demand.

While enterprises have found short-term solutions to manage the limitations and expense of disk — including taking data offline to be archived on systems that take up to several days to get back — temporary fixes significantly slow the pace of the business.

FlashArray//E provides a cost-effective alternative to disk, reducing data centre space and eliminating inefficient power usage without storage trade-offs.

“All-flash arrays have changed the way companies of all sizes across industries approach modern storage architectures and Pure Storage has been a key vendor in developing this market,” said Dave Pearson, Research Vice President, IDC. “Pure continues to expand its portfolio to provide data centres with more options to modernise storage infrastructure with the scalability, flexibility and predictable performance that end-users demand for current and next generation workloads.”
