Matt Leib takes a look at what he learned from this year’s Flash Memory Summit. What stood out were the importance of NVMe scalability, as well as the emergence of non-volatile persistent memory. Of note, this year saw the first storage array to use NVMe protocol and hardware across the board, Pure Storage’s FlashArray//X.
In this post, Dan Frith looks at Pure Storage’s Data-centric Architecture in their newly announced range of FlashArray //X products. These take advantage of NVMe to build a common storage platform that can be used by both traditional and modern applications. He also shows how Pure provides an easy upgrade path for existing customers to take advantage of this architecture.
