We invented the concept of Evergreen storage. After hearing so many customer complaints about other vendors’ cycles of repurchasing and data migration, we thought it was about time. See what we had in mind.
Evergreen™ Storage is much more than a one-time controller upgrade. It’s about getting value from your storage investment through multiple generations of performance and density improvements. Ask yourself, does your storage vendor require you to re-buy existing media at generational upgrades – like with NVMe? Will that upgrade affect performance or require downtime? And will that generational upgrade require migrating data from your current array to a new one? If your vendor’s answer to any of these questions is yes, they don’t have an Evergreen Storage model.
Evergreen means storage that gets better with age. You can deploy it once and keep expanding and improving it for 10 years or more, all without any downtime, performance impact, or data migrations.
Like SaaS, Evergreen Storage enables you to harness rapid software, hardware, and flash innovation – with no need to wait for a 4-5 year refresh. Your Evergreen Storage Subscription gets you all-inclusive access to our latest software and hardware, today and into the future, without having to pay extra for your existing storage footprint. It’s as simple as that.
FlashArray//X delivers the next great advance in all-flash performance and density with DirectFlash technology. And the beauty of it is that, through Evergreen Storage, all FlashArray//M customers have a simple, non-disruptive upgrade path to the NVMe, software-defined power of DirectFlash. No data migrations, no forklift upgrades.
We’re so confident in the Evergreen Storage model of FlashArray, we guarantee it. Every new //M is guaranteed to be upgradable* to full NVMe through an Evergreen upgrade to FlashArray//X. If we can’t make the upgrade work, we'll replace your array with a full NVMe array – for free.
Pure Storage offers a capacity consolidation program to help you manage capacity growth. Consolidate the data on your older external shelves into new, denser capacity flash, and eventually move that capacity to high-performance DirectFlash modules. Return your old storage shelves and get a credit for the TBs you already own.**
With Pure, you’ll just pay one, simple flat maintenance renewal and get continuously modernized performance, scale, and features. But just the switch to Pure Storage all-flash will net a 33% CAPEX/OPEX savings over 6 years versus the competition. And the TCO only gets better from there.
