Pure Storage Leads In Storage Industry Growth 

Pure Storage last week unveiled its second fiscal quarter 2020 financials: the firm reported 28-percent year-over-year revenue for the quarter of $396.3 million, placing it in the lead by a wide margin over all its publicly-listed storage competitors. Contrast that with Pure Storage's top rival, NetApp, which a week earlier reported an 18-percent drop in year-over-year revenue for its first fiscal quarter 2020 and blamed the shortfall in large part on the macroeconomic environment.

Pure Storage CEO Charles Giancarlo told CRN that macroeconomic conditions did not impact his company. Instead, he said the company depended on a combination of product differentiation and the fact that it has no large legacy customer base to protect.

Giancarlo also opened up about what to expect from next month's Pure Accelerate conference, to be held Sept. 15-19 in Austin, Texas. In particular, he said to watch the stage for an appearance by Amazon and some Amazon customers to talk about the new Pure Storage Cloud Block Store for AWS, a technology that allows his company's storage software to run natively on AWS for managing block data across on-premises and Amazon Web Services cloud environments.
