Pure Storage Ships Blades for Unstructured Workloads

Pure Storage, a solid-state array vendor, announced that FlashBlade, the company’s second product built for high-performance unstructured workloads, is now shipping in both 8.8TB and 52TB blade capacities with the Elasticity 1.2 software. FlashBlade was first announced in March 2016.

“FlashBlade is not only optimized for the rapidly expanding world of unstructured data, but also designed to revolutionize the way organizations innovate with that data,” said Scott Dietzen, CEO of Pure Storage.

FlashBlade is an elastic scale-out system that delivers all-flash performance to petabyte-scale data sets with overall economics comparable to legacy hybrid arrays. Optimized for high concurrency, high bandwidth, high IOPS and consistently low latency in a small, 4U form factor, FlashBlade is equipped to handle the most demanding workloads generated by high-performance applications.
