Evaluate Pure Storage

Unleash the Power of Virtualization

All-Flash Storage: The New Standard
for Virtualization and Cloud

  • Virtualize the most demanding workloads
  • Consolidate with ease
  • Keep vital workloads online and available
  • Deploy more VMs in less space


Consistent 100% flash performance
enables virtualization to shine

Slow storage limits your ability to get the most out of virtualization. With uninterrupted flash performance – low latency and 100s of 1000s of IOPS – you can virtualize any workload without risk, consolidate with confidence.


“Pure's performance is great – in fact it's over-performing.”

Brent Allen, Dir. of Infrastructure
