Pure Storage Doubles Down on All-Flash Unstructured Storage with FlashBlade//S Announcement at Pure//Accelerate 2022
This IDC Market Note reviews the announcements made at the Pure Storage annual user conference Pure//Accelerate 2022, which was held June 8, 2022, in Los Angeles, California. In his keynote, Pure Storage CEO Charles Giancarlo talked about how the vendor, having successfully led the evolution of primary storage workloads onto all-flash in datacenters across the world, is entering a new phase where it will be leading the charge to bring all-flash capabilities to secondary storage workloads (most of which are based on unstructured data). The core product announcements were around FlashBlade//S, Pure Storage's scale-out unstructured data storage platform, which features a new modular and disaggregated architecture for increased flexibility, impressive power and cost efficiency, and significantly increased performance and storage density. All in all, it was an impressive kickoff for the second phase of the vendor's evolution.
