The development of enterprise storage has historically oscillated between a focus on special-purpose hardware and optimized software. In this episode, brought to you by Pure Storage, Justin Emerson, Justin Warren, and Marc Staimer join Stephen Foskett to discuss this push and pull. Modern storage systems are extremely complicated, with layers of virtualization, different protocols, intelligence, tiered media, and scalability. All of this complexity makes the design of a storage system more difficult, so a company like Pure that can control the entire stack is able to deliver a more efficient system.
