FlashCare: Efficient Flash Management Globally

Purity is built from the ground-up for the flash of today and tomorrow. FlashCare technology writes data to flash memory in the ideal manner for your entire array – optimizing its performance, balancing flash memory wear and maximizing lifespan, while allowing you to mix-and-match SSDs in the same system as you grow.

Purity Core: The Power of Variable-Block Metadata
