All-Flash Storage Is Not All About Speed

Pure Storage just came off what CEO Scott Dietzen said is a good first fiscal quarter 2018. The company enjoyed 31 percent revenue growth to $182.6 million for the quarter and saw its losses narrow to $62.4 million.

Dietzen said the highlights of Pure Storage's business are that it is growing market share in all-flash storage; protecting its customers' investments as they start migrating to new protocols like NVMe; and preparing for next month's Pure //Accelerate conference in San Francisco, where the company will be focused less on hardware and more on software.

"Dietz," as he is known in a company where everyone adopts a one-syllable name, sat down with CRN to discuss the all-flash storage business and Pure Storage's place in it.
