Pure Storage And The Future Of Flash
All-flash storage vendor Pure Storage celebrated its status as the newest publicly listed storage vendor by holding its first customer and channel event, Pure//Accelerate 2016.
The event, held in March in the shadow of San Francisco's AT&T Park, gave the company the opportunity the opportunity to not only show off its new FlashBlade all-flash array for unstructured data, but to spend time with channel partners and customers talking about the company's vision.
Pure Storage CEO Scott Dietzen sat down with CRN for a frank discussion of the new technology, the future of the flash storage industry and the company's place in that future, and the competition, especially NetApp's acquisition of SolidFire.
Here's a look at where Pure Storage fits in the data center today and where it is heading in the future.
