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.

The Pure Storage Accelerate conference is coming up in September. Can you give us some teasers about what we can expect to hear more about then? 

Certainly more about the cloud. The products that we announced over the last six months at [last year's Accelerate] will be in GA [general availability], and you'll hear more about our progress there. And finally, we have things in the pipeline that you'll be hearing about brand new at Accelerate.

Any hints? 

Again, sorry. I'd have a posse after me if I said more. As much as I would enjoy that, and you would enjoy that, the pain afterwards would be tough to handle.

Now that Pure Storage's Compuverde acquisition is closed, what can we expect in terms of how it will be integrated with your company? 

We haven't gone in great detail, which we will do at the Accelerate conference in September. But the first focus area is to add file capabilities onto FlashArray.

How important is that for Pure Storage and its customers?

We think it significantly expands our total available market. Many of our customers who use us on FlashArray for block [storage] have really asked if we could add unified capabilities, that is file and object storage onto the same system. Not only will it allow us to do that, but we think it's going to allow us to put out a very competitive, high-performance file offering as well.
