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 time has come to take sides on the core question of storage for virtual servers: Do you want storage intelligence to live in the hypervisor or the array? Most administrators are already lining up on one side or the other, unintentionally casting their vote while the rest flounder. But the storage industry must wake up and embrace the divide.
