Pure Storage

Pure Storage is a provider of enterprise data flash storage solutions designed to substitute for electromechanical disk arrays. As data becomes a more valuable asset to companies, emphasis on enterprise storage has increased. Pure Storage is considered to be a key player in the solid-state storage array market and aims to provide a seamless transition from alternate storage methods. Benefits of solid-state arrays include reduced IT project risk, optimized costs, better integration features and lower latency.

Pure Storage products have been designed to provide companies with "flash for the price of disk" by using comparable features and pricing. Incorporated into their end-to-end product suite, Pure Data-Centric Architecture, Pure Storage solutions can help with consolidating applications, simplifying integration, providing real-time data streams, and increasing productivity.

Uses for the Pure Storage suite of products include consolidating data silos, creating a unified platform for sharing analytics, accelerating the continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline and enabling the automation of multi-cloud environments.
