Over the past two decades, we’ve seen data center infrastructure and data protection strategies evolve from “disk-to-tape-to-truck” … to “disk-to-disk-to-tape” … to “flash-to-disk-to-disk”. Performance, data availability, and data insight requirements—- forged together with the evolution of flash economics—- have taken most production environments from disk to flash. The need to rapidly restore critical data sets combined with the dream for organizations to demonstrate a multi-cloud strategy, is leading us into a flash-to-flash-to-cloud world, and Pure is leading the way.
What You Will Be Doing
FlashBlade (FB) was designed from the ground up to serve as a Dynamic Data Hub that eliminates silos across backup, analytics, and AI workflows. Customers frustrated by slow restore times associated with legacy PBBA platforms can dramatically improve RTO and RPO by using FlashBlade as a backup target—- with the investment protection of a Data Hub foundation that supports next generation workloads such as aAnalytics.
Our mission is to make FB the obvious choice due to its proven scalable backup and restore performance, capacity, density and simplicity. The recent addition of StorReduce technology to the Pure Storage portfolio will improve the offering by providing deduplication as well as cloud mobility capabilities.
