What if your storage were so simple and reliable that you rarely even thought about it? Smart Storage is a lot better than easy – it's effortless. And it means you'll finally be able to focus on innovation, rather than administration.
What does designing for 100% availability, or what we call always-on, always-fast, mean in the real world? It means your data is available all the time, including time spent on software and hardware upgrades and maintenance – and we're vanishingly close to that goal. Today, 96.6% of our arrays have achieved 100% availability. Goodbye, downtime.
We aim to eradicate all the complexity of traditional storage – and the management tasks surrounding that complexity. No more tuning, storage pools, caching, tiering, performance troubleshooting, planned downtime, forklift upgrades, and the rest. Instead, we're creating storage that manages itself. If there's ever anything that needs your attention, your smartphone will let you know.
We believe storage should be plug-n-play simple. A Pure Storage installation consists of connecting six cables while glancing at an instructional business card. No manuals, nothing extra to buy or install. Same with your solutions: your storage should be application aware and self-configuring. If it's Smart Storage, you'll be up and running in 30 minutes.
We're here to make your job easier, and we're always thinking of ways to make it easier still. That's why your Pure Storage solution in effect comes with a team of admins monitoring the health of your cloud-connected array to keep you at full performance, 24/7. We're going to handle most issues before you're even aware of them. In fact, there's so little you'll have to do, you may actually forget your storage management login password. (This has happened to a number of customers.)
We see a future of effortless storage that is fully cloud-connected, one in which management, analytics, support, and protection are delivered as services, and where big-data driven insights from our global installed base continuously improve your storage. Imagine storage that automatically snaps and backs up your data, giving you application consistent recovery anytime, anywhere, at the click of a button.
