Pure Storage Introduces Purity//FB 3.0 for FlashBlade

Pure Storage is releasing Purity//FB 3.0 for FlashBlade, the next generation of the advanced storage software for unstructured data.

The latest updates to FlashBlade enable real-time performance that allow application workflows to take center stage – resulting in a Modern Data Experience that replaces complexities and antiquated systems with fast, flexible and agile solutions built to fit modern needs.

“FlashBlade is so unique because it is designed from the ground-up for tomorrow’s data pipelines and real-time analytics applications, with simplicity, ease of use and performance in mind -- something that legacy storage vendors struggle with,” said Matt Burr, vice president and general manager of FlashBlade. “It delivers multi-dimensional performance and provides an unparalleled customer experience in the scale-out, unified file and object storage market.”

Purity//FB 3.0, the scale-out software that powers FlashBlade, delivers the same simplicity and ease of use for the new capabilities that customers have come to love and expect from FlashBlade. Pure-as-a-Service, a true OpEx model, allows customers to leverage FlashBlade via a flexible consumption model.

Purity//FB 3.0 delivers capabilities that can address unique challenges including:

  • File Replication
  • Object Replication
  • File system Rollback
  • NFS v4.1 Kerberos
  • Audit Logs and SNMP Support

Architected to help customers achieve better resource utilization for compute and storage, FlashBlade reduces the complexity that arises from data silos. FlashBlade extends this approach to key enterprise features such as replication for file and object and file system rollback, and allows data scientists and data architects to realize the potential of the models they design and create, faster.

FlashBlade delivers a truly unified, scale-out fast file and object storage platform purpose-built to support modern application development, modern analytics and next-generation data protection.

FlashBlade is unique in its ability to accelerate applications and enable data to be shared across applications and workloads.
