Deploying an application on multiple clouds presents some unique challenges. While each cloud has similar constructs in terms of compute, networking, and storage, the implementation of those constructs differs to a lesser or greater degree in each public cloud. Dealing with the vagaries of a particular cloud’s implementation requires a certain level of sophistication and expertise, making a multi-cloud deployment an administrative nightmare. What an organization needs is a consistent deployment model across multiple clouds without requiring in-depth knowledge of each cloud’s implementation. In this piece, Ned Bellavance looks at how Pure Storage provides storage predictability and consistency in multi-cloud using Kubernetes and the Pure Service Orchestrator.

Is the Management Platform As Important as the Hardware? Pure Storage Says “Yes” with Its Innovations In Pure1
With the Pure1 management platform, Pure Storage changed the way storage could be managed. Paul Woodward considers how Pure Storage’s continued investment in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning has helped Pure 1 evolve to meet and exceed customer demands.
Not all AI consumers are interested in diverting their limited resources and time into becoming an IT infrastructure system integrator. The breadth of work needed to ready the IT infrastructure resources needed so that developers can start their work can be dizzying.In highly competitive industries, three to six months of delay on critical, competition-driven business initiatives can make a huge difference. With that in mind, Max Mortillaro looks at Pure Storage’s AIRI, a fully integrated AI-ready infrastructure stack that enables organizations to spend more time on delivering value and achieve a faster ROI.
In this post, Matt Leib takes a look at Pure Storage’s ObjectEngine. This leverages Pure’s all-flash architecture, combined with extensive compatibility with many backup software platforms, to enable rapid recovery and full metadata tracking across all platforms. For Matt, this full platform vision for data management really stands out in a crowded field.
With DirectFlash Fabric, Pure Storage not only addresses the oxymoron of delivering simple and fast direct access storage with enterprise-class features. It also does so without forcing its customers to purchase a new storage array. Max Mortillaro looks at why the NVMe over Fabrics revolution is marching on.
Matt Leib looks at how Pure Storage has accomplished some very interesting things in its relatively short history. Their FlashArray//X, as of 2018, is an all-NVMe portfolio of arrays, that works as a high-speed block device with minimal latency. With this NVMe foundation, Pure Storage is leading the way when it comes to solving storage problems across the board and helping us usher in the future of storage.
The past few years, we’ve seen the rise of hybrid cloud as more organizations realize that they don’t need to make a decision to use either public or private cloud, but can make a decision about which to use based on specific application needs.
Pure has recently expanded its product line-up with a set of products aimed at helping its customers bridge the data management gap between on-premises and public cloud. In this post, Enrico Signoretti goes into detail on StorReduce. This sits in front of an AWS S3 compatible storage with the intent of deduplicating all data that comes in, seamlessly, like a sort of gateway. This gives organizations the benefits of public cloud object storage, without the strings that often come with it.
I’ve been following Pure Storage since the very beginning. I always saw the company as a contender for mainstream enterprise storage rather than their professed focus on all-flash arrays. With the introduction of Cloud Block Storage, the company is finally showing their cards: It’s the storage solution that matters, not the flash.
Pure Storage recently announced a new offering running as software on AWS known as Pure Storage Cloud Data Services. So what does a cloud offering from Pure Storage get you other than an Orange Colored Sky? A lot of value to the enterprise, as it turns out.
