Pure Storage, a solid-state array vendor, announced a new entry-level model of its flagship purpose-built all-flash storage array, the FlashArray//m10. This new addition to the FlashArray//m family, to be released to June, is intended to offer a complete storage solution in one package.
"This addition to the FlashArray family allows us to provide an entry-level, cost-effective option for companies that want to try purpose-built all-flash for the first time, and accelerate their journey to an all-flash datacenter," said Matt Kixmoeller, vice president of products for Pure Storage.
FlashArray//m10 provides enterprises the ability to accelerate business-critical applications, virtualize everything and implement an internal all-flash cloud. The FlashArray//m10 is fully-upgradable to larger //m20, //m50 or //m70 FlashArrays as the business grows. All FlashArrays benefit from the Evergreen Storage model, available from Pure, which enable upgrades without disruption or data migration.
The company also announced FlashStack Mini, a converged infrastructure solution that pre-integrates the new FlashArray//m10 with UCS servers and networking from Cisco, and virtualization software from VMware or Microsoft. FlashStack Mini with Microsoft Hyper-V will enable Microsoft application consolidation for an on-premises cloud that is 100% virtualized and 100% all-flash. Companies will be able to achieve cloud-like functions in their own data centers. FlashStack Mini with VMware Horizon View can support up to 1,200 virtual desktops, powered by all-flash.
