Fixing What Ails The U.S. Patent System: A Modest Proposal

This post originally appeared on Forbes.com and is authored by Pure Storage VP of Legal, Joe FitzGerald. It’s time to overhaul the broken, ineffective U.S. patent system so that it actually promotes innovation and doesn’t inhibit it.

Introducing FlashStack Converged Infrastructure

flashstack stack

At Pure Storage we’re dedicated to a number of core principles, including delivering simplicity, efficiency and an excellent customer experience. While the Converged Infrastructure movement has dramatically simplified the deployment of computing, unfortunately most converged infrastructure solutions are based on slow, complex, bulky disk storage systems that just can’t keep up in a modern data center environment.

Update-Help Implemented in Pure Storage PowerShell Toolkit

Documentation and examples are what I consider to be the most important element to any PowerShell library. Although I implemented a comprehensive Get-Help support in the toolkit it was always tightly coupled to the PSM1 release. I wanted the ability to add to the underlying help with more examples, notes on what cmdlets map to […]
