Pure Storage

Pure Storage, the all-flash enterprise storage company, enables the broad deployment of flash in the data center. When compared to traditional disk-centric arrays, the Pure Storage FlashArray is 10x faster and 10x more space and power efficient, for less than the cost of mechanical disk per gigabyte stored. FlashArray was purpose-built to uniquely deliver the benefits of flash together with inline data reduction, deduplication and compression to optimize storage utilization, performance and cost-savings for a variety of enterprise workloads, including server virtualization, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), database (OLTP, real-time analytics), and cloud computing.

Whitepaper: Cloning Databases on Pure Storage

by Pure StorageJun 17, 2014

Anywhere there is a database, there will eventually be a need to make a copy, or clone of it. For example, a copy of the production database may be cloned for development testing, or reporting, or simply for backup. Or a QA environment may need to restore an environment to specific point in time to perform testing. The cloning process is generally tedious, time consuming, and subject to errors.

The Pure Storage FlashArray comes with a snapshotting capability that users can leverage for a variety of purposes, including cloning databases quickly and easily. This document describes the database cloning procedure for Oracle databases running on Linux, using both Automatic Storage Management (ASM) and file system based data files.

Whitepaper: Best Practices for Oracle on Pure Storage

by Pure StorageJun 17, 2014

In this document we provide information to help you to optimize the Pure Storage FlashArray for your Oracle database workload.

Whitepaper: Pure Storage Reference Architecture for Oracle Databases

by Pure StorageJun 17, 2014

The goal of this document is to demonstrate the ease with which Oracle can be deployed on, or migrated to a Pure Storage FlashArray and the resulting performance improvements. In addition, we show how simple it is to perform administrative tasks such as storage provisioning and database backup and recovery using snapshots.

Webcast: The Top Five VDI Project Roadblocks and How To Avoid Them

by Pure StorageApr 07, 2014

The promise of VDI is clear: a great user experience with lower costs and better IT control. Unfortunately, many VDI deployments fail due to poor performance, high cost-per-desktop, low reliability, excessive complexity, and limited scalability. There are 5 common issues with VDI deployments that crush user acceptance and kill ROI.

Attend this webinar to learn how to

    • Resolve performance issues with high-performance all-flash storage
    • Better than the cost of 15k disk though data reduction and an optimized flash architecture
    • Improve reliability with highly-available resilient storage
    • Reduce complexity and integration - No more LUNs, RAID groups or performance tuning.

Register for this webinar to learn how Pure Storage resolves the five most common VDI issues and how you can rescue your deployment.

Whitepaper: San Jose Sharks Score Big With Pure Storage

by Pure StorageMar 15, 2014

� 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

Whitepaper: Siemens Redefines Efficiency With Pure Storage

by Pure StorageMar 15, 2014

� 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

Whitepaper: Using All-Flash Arrays to Solve Tier-1 Database Problems

by Pure StorageMar 15, 2014

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 point that is less expensive than disk based and even hybrid systems

Whitepaper: How Flash Storage Changes Everything

by Pure StorageMar 15, 2014

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 Environment.

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; and
� Less costly than the $5 per GB that is the going
