New architecture disaggregates resources to give customers the freedom to scale in any direction, unlocking the most diverse set of workloads while providing investment protection

LOS ANGELES, June 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today at Pure//Accelerate® techfest22, Pure Storage® (NYSE: PSTG), the computing pioneer providing the world’s most advanced data storage technology and services, announced the FlashBlade®//S family of products with a new modular architecture based on uniquely co-engineered hardware and software. The new platform leverages a nearly limitless scalable metadata architecture, delivering more than double the density, performance, and power efficiency of previous versions. The platform evolves over time based on customer needs.

In 2017, Pure Storage rewrote the rules of scale-out storage by introducing FlashBlade as a unified fast file and object platform – the first high-performance storage solution for modern data. Pure also designed its software and created DirectFlash technology to anticipate future flash needs across a wide range of workloads.

With today’s announcement, Pure is revolutionizing the market again with FlashBlade//S by introducing a modular architecture that decouples compute from capacity. Storage, compute, and networking elements can be upgraded flexibly and non-disruptively, delivering a highly configurable and customizable file and object platform to meet the broadest set of workloads modern workplaces. It can deliver both the highest levels of performance and capacity optimization with Pure’s proprietary all-QLC architecture without the need for expensive caching solutions.

According to IDC, disaggregating storage platforms provides more flexibility in building highly efficient computing infrastructures. It not only allows administrators to gather the right balance of computing resources for a given workload to minimize costs, but it also allows them to perform upgrades on different resources independently as needed.

Designed for forward-thinking organizations, FlashBlade//S offers:

  • Future proof with Evergreen Subscription: Harnessing the full power of Evergreen subscription services, customers benefit from unparalleled flexibility and non-disruptive upgrades with FlashBlade//S. Companies never have to worry about storage platform obsolescence or disruptive data migrations again. This is further enhanced with today’s announcement detailing the enlargement evergreen wallet.
  • Peace of mind for durability requirements: As end users are increasingly under pressure to prioritize durability, the new FlashBlade//S family helps them meet those needs with better performance on key metrics like capacity per watt, bandwidth per watt and capacity per rack unit, resulting in a reduced overall data center footprint. For these reasons, Meta chose Pure to power its AI Research Supercluster (RSC).
  • Scale performance, simplicity and efficiency of unstructured data: The new FlashBlade//S family, with tightly engineered hardware and Purity//FB 4.0 software, pushes the boundaries of performance, scalability and efficiency. FlashBlade//S will also accelerate the pace of innovation and help bring denser, more energy-efficient technologies to market faster. This enables customers to achieve the simplicity, exabyte-level scalability, and multidimensional performance required for consolidating key unstructured data workloads.

“FlashBlade//S’s architectural differentiation is the result of better science that drives innovation in both software and hardware. It enables exceptional performance, efficiency, and scalability, giving customers flexibility and confidence in their long-term unstructured data strategy. It is not only the last scalable platform that organizations will need, but also the right choice to meet environmental and sustainability ambitions, which are increasingly important for the customers. ” – Matt BurrGeneral Manager, FlashBlade, Pure Storage

“To better adapt to the scalable nature of unstructured data workloads, organizations need a modern storage platform that legacy designs simply cannot match. The new disaggregated architecture and software and deeply co-engineered hardware make FlashBlade//S a very attractive choice for customers looking for a scalable, high-performance platform that also delivers environmental efficiency.” – Patrick MorheadFounder, Moor Insights and Strategy

As part of today’s launch, Pure also announced the next generation of AIRI®//S, the industry’s first comprehensive AI-ready infrastructure, powered by NVIDIA. This Pure and NVIDIA solution further enhances FlashBlade’s vast set of use cases in AI, machine learning, and modern analytics.

General availability of FlashBlade//S products will begin in the second quarter of FY23.
