Pure Storage CEO Giancarlo On Cloud Moves, Competition, HCI, And What's Next

Pure Storage CEO Charlie Giancarlo outlines how his company is approaching the cloud on multiple fronts, and said that it has no plans for hyper-converged infrastructure because combining its storage with stateless servers is a better way to go.

Pure Storage talks about four areas of focus. What are they? 

Hybrid cloud, fast consolidated data, AI and analytics, and fast restore. And what fast consolidated data means, customers have been trained by the legacy storage providers over 30 years that, if they have more than one use for their data, which they always do, let's say, production and analytics and development, they have to copy that data to three different arrays, each of the arrays having different characteristics. And so they're paying for that data three times. Our belief is, the data is the data. Why not have one array with three different applications accessing the data with each application getting the performance it needs and with the proper protection against corruption for the data.

But isn't one of the other of those four areas, rapid restore, a part of consolidated data? 

Well, it can be. But rapid restore--again, customers have been trained to buy backup only to have to the backup take 24 to 48 hours to provide recovery. In our case, using flash, we're able to provide customers recovery in minutes rather than hours or days. You're right: Now that you have that data backed up onto flash, it could be used for analytics and other things. These four different areas can be separate, but they can overlap.
