Pure Storage on Monday launched a new storage array designed by the company, cloud management and support tools and a model designed to make upgrades more efficient. The company is making its moves as it becomes increasingly clear that flash-based storage systems are becoming the norm in the data center. Pure, which was one of the early movers in the enterprise solid-state storage market, made its way primarily through software.
Pure Storage outlined plans to add the latest in flash memory technology to its storage arrays, launched optimized systems for SAP and Oracle and added capacity planning to its cloud management system.
The storage company, in its first product launch since its initial public offering, could benefit as more data centers turn to solid state arrays and rival EMC preps a merger with Dell. On the other side of the flash storage equation, HP, EMC and a bevy of others have focused on solid-state arrays.
