Flashblade - Leveraging All-Flash Storage to Deliver Extreme Performance for Your Most Challenging Workloads

Thumb original ps wp flashblade overview 01

In the last 10 years, the rate of compute and network performance has outpaced storage. Compute nodes with multiple cores, advanced memory technology, high speed bus, and fast network NICs have kept pace with network speeds of 25GbE/40GbE, and even up to 100GbE. Unfortunately, most storage architectures, even the new clustered scale up/out architectures, are nothing more than derivatives of older legacy designs, and, as a result, storage has become the primary bottleneck for applications.

This is the golden age of applications – where design, simulation, visualization, and interpretation can all be performed digitally on high-powered servers and networks. Eliminating the storage bottleneck has become imperative if customers are to continue doing ground-breaking design, discovery, and research with their applications.

Now, Pure Storage has shattered the storage bottleneck with an innovative all- flash design called FlashBlade. This design has resulted in a high performance, compact storage solution that is effortless to use. The FlashBlade array has become the storage foundation for our customers for the next 10 years as they embark on new application solutions in fields like genomics, analytics, and deep learning.

Software-Defined Storage — Opportunities for the Enterprise

IDC believes that software-defined storage (SDS) continues to transform IT deployment and consumption of storage resources. For enterprises, SDS is really an on-ramp to deploying a hybrid cloud — one that allows a metered on-demand consumption of private and public cloud resources. Deploying SDS therefore is not a question of "if" but a question of "when." IDC's August 2015 Software-Defined Infrastructure Survey found that 75% of enterprises have deployed or are considering deploying some form of SDS in their environment.

For such enterpris ...
