Evergreen™ Storage is unlike typical storage industry offerings that focus on warranties, support, and one-time controller upgrades. Instead, Evergreen is about applying a cloud-like approach to on-prem storage – giving you a subscription-based storage experience that keeps getting better with age. Buy your storage once, and upgrade and modernize it as needed, all without any disruption and without re-buying any TBs you already own. Through our Evergreen Storage Gold and Silver subscriptions, you can harness rapid software, hardware, and flash innovation – annually or even faster – with no need to wait for a 4-5 year refresh.
Evergreen Gold is our standard subscription offering, delivering our complete set of ever-improving capabilities across software, hardware, white-glove support, and maintenance. With Evergreen Gold, you get the full benefit of a SaaS-like model but tailored for on-prem storage, and with better economics for routine modernization compared to Evergreen Silver.
Evergreen Silver is our value subscription offering, geared for smaller organizations. Silver delivers the same subscription to software, white-glove support, and maintenance, but omits the subscription to hardware. Because all Pure Storage arrays are engineered to be Evergreen, Evergreen Silver customers can still purchase hardware upgrades a la carte and deploy them non-disruptively as needed.
Evergreen Subscriptions give you all-inclusive access to our software, today and into the future, without having to pay extra for your existing storage footprint. It’s as simple as that. Our customers have already benefited tremendously as we’ve rolled out major enhancements over the years, and there are plenty more to come.
Tired of big expenses hitting your budget at inconvenient times? Or having to deal with increasingly higher costs to own aging storage? Evergreen Subscriptions give you predictably flat maintenance rates over time. They’ll never go up, and they may even go down. And, we’ll replace any problematic hardware or software with like or better for as long as you are under our subscription.
Evergreen Subscriptions give you a full complement of high end services to make sure your array runs fast and smoothly. Our Global Insight Engine in the Pure1 cloud powers our Predictive Analytics, which are optimized to find and fix potential issues – before they become real issues. Our experts are keeping tabs on your arrays at all times, helping you through upgrades, responding within a mere 15 minutes for any Sev 1 incident, and ready to notify you if we need your assistance. If you do call us, we’ll be standing by with instant access to L2 support – no L1 hassles and repeated explanations that waste time and money. It’s practically like a managed service included in your subscription.
Our standard Evergreen Gold subscription completes the experience with a range of programs to modernize both controllers and flash media – without re-buys. Evergreen Gold includes next-generation controllers with every three year renewal. With Evergreen Gold’s Upgrade Flex bundles, anytime you expand FlashArray with a qualifying capacity purchase you receive trade-in credit for your existing controllers towards our most modern controllers – even if they are next-generation. Either way, your controllers will stay modern. And for flash media, any capacity expansions not tied to an Upgrade Flex qualify for trade-in credit for a portion of your existing, less dense flash. The end result? No repurchases of TBs you already own even as your whole FlashArray modernizes. That’s what we mean by Evergreen.
Evergreen Storage subscriptions are a radically better experience compared to the status quo. Get storage you can buy once and keep modern, harness rapid software, CPU, and flash innovations to power your business, and get everything in an all-inclusive subscription.
