All-flash storage array developer Pure Storage in May unveiled the third-generation of its enterprise-class array, the FlashArray 400 Series. The FlashArray 400 uses the Mountain View, Calif.-based company's new Purity Operating Environment 3.0 software to double the storage capacity and performance over its previous models and to accelerate virtual machine cloning.
The FlashArray 400 uses Intel's 8-core "Sandy Bridge" processor to deliver up to 400,000 8K IOPs while providing up to 100 TB of usable all-flash capacity.
May also saw Pure Storage unveil a strategic investment from In-Q-Tel, the investment firm that identifies technology companies with solutions that can support U.S. government intelligence requirements. With the investment comes an agreement to further develop Pure Storage's FlashArray technology to meet government needs.
