Pure Storage set out with a simple mission: to create a purpose-built
storage array that overcomes these
barriers. The result is the Pure Storage FlashArray and its
tightly-coupled software, the Purity Operating
When compared to a disk array, the FlashArray is:
• 10X faster (on both IOPS and latency);
• 10X more efficient in power, space, and cooling;
• More reliable on enterprise workloads;
• So simple that it installs in minutes; ...
• Server consolidation stalled due to storage performance limits
• IO-intensive Oracle database would not consolidate with other applications
• Multiple instances of virtual applications plus the Oracle DB
• Consolidated 30 servers to 5
• 23% increase in Oracle performance after virtualization
• 6.7-to-1 data reduction
• Provisioning time reduced by 4x
• 2x increase in VMware snapshot release time

Latency is the life-blood of any database application. When
transactions slow, it is often a direct result of disk contention at
the storage layer driving-up storage I/O latency, which directly
translates into slower transactions and a slower end-user experience.
Moving to an all-flash architecture for your database affords immediate and obvious performance benefits, but also introduces a whole host of operational benefits:
• Simplify operations
• Eliminate tuning
• Provide a price ...
• Legacy disk-based SAN performance plummeted with the addition of just 10 VDI users.
• The management complexities of the legacy disk-based SAN did not allow for a "set-it-and-forget-it" operation, but the organization required simplicity.
• Currently supporting 250 virtual desktops, with more to be deployed
• Reduced latency to sub-millisecond
• Dramatically simplified storage management
• Achieved 12-to-1 data reduction
March 2014- Learn why companies that adopted the public cloud approach are now looking at alternative deployment models for online file sharing. Research shows 97% cloud adopters prefer a hybrid solution which gives them more control over their data.
March 2014- As the exponential data growth and an increasing pressure on the data center to become more efficient continues, a traditional "one size fits all" strategy for storage design is no longer adequate. Trends such as server virtualization, proliferation of multi-core processors, and a rising adoption of desktop virtualization are increasing the requirement for high I/O performance with low latency and very fast response times. On the other side of the spectrum, an explosive growth ...
Flash storage can deliver impressive performance, especially for random I/O, by eliminating rotational and seek latencies that are common in all hard disk drive (HDD) storage systems.
Read this technical bulletin to understand some basics of flash storage technology, along with key adoption considerations, to help determine if flash storage is right for your organization's needs.
All data is not created equal and thus all data need not be treated the same by the storage system. IT executives must deploy innovative solutions to make the most relevant data available to applications and decision makers in the most expedience way while containing overall storage costs.
This brief describes the need for automated and intelligent tiered storage, the benefits of tiered storage, and adoption considerations to help you differentiate the available ...

March 2014- A Smart Idea for Big Data
February 2014- The network security paradigm is currently shifting toward a new reality as advanced hacking methods become more prevalent and harder to detect. An example of such a method is advanced evasion techniques (AETs). Although evasions have been documented extensively in the last fifteen years, security vendors have systematically ignored the significance of evasions. Some vendors have even downplayed the threat posed by evasions as being purely theoretical. Yet this debate misses the bigger issue: the ...
