The Future of Hybrid Data Services with Microsoft and Pure Storage

The hybrid cloud is here to stay. Edge computing continues to expand and the appetite for AI is vivacious. This year Microsoft will release its most cloud connected version of SQL Server to take customers on that journey. Listen in as Bob Ward, Microsoft Principal Architect for Azure Data, discusses how far we have come, where we are going and why the future will run seamlessly with SQL Server on Pure Storage.

Oracle Database Cloning and Refresh: From Theory to Practice

The number of organizations embracing Agile development methodologies is increasing by the day. For that to be successful, it’s imperative that development, test, and support teams are provided with recent copies of their production Oracle databases. This increases the number of requests to the DBA team to spin up new database copies or refresh existing ones. It is estimated that for each production database, there exist at least six non-production environments. Without the use of data reduction technologies, like those provided by Purity Snapshots, and automation of the workflow, the storage as well as human cost of creating and maintaining the non-production databases can quickly get out of control.

Reduce SAP HANA TCO with SAP HANA NSE, Intel Optane, & Pure Storage

SAP HANA’s data tiering solution, Native Storage Extension (NSE), supports S/4HANA and allows you to move up to 80% of HANA data into a warm data tier. Housing this data outside of in-memory HANA, generally reduces costs by a similar percentage!

But traditionally such savings also came with a stiff performance penalty when you bring that warm data back into HANA for processing. No More.

Pure Storage has partnered with Intel to integrate their new Optane SSD memory into our FlashArray solutions for SAP. Optane dramatically reduces the latency associated your data’s return trip to HANA. With Optane SSD, aka DirectMemory™ Cache from Pure Storage, your users will not notice any difference compared to leaving their entire dataset in-memory. But your IT budget will love you. Think of all you can do with the savings!

3 Key Questions:

  • What is HANA NSE and how does it work?
  • What is Intel Optane SSD for Storage?
  • How does NSE & Optane reduce HANA Total Cost of Ownership?

Enable a Next-Gen Connected Cloud Datacenter with Programmable and Flexible Infrastructure

Many businesses are challenged with on-demand infrastructure provisioning while striving to reduce or eliminate their traditional, physical datacenter footprint. Businesses that are modernizing their datacenter presence are adopting more flexible, on-demand infrastructure consumption models, but still require strict legal and data compliance guidelines.


To address these paradoxical needs, they are choosing a mix of programmable infrastructure and connected cloud architectures with open APIs. These integrated models using Kubernetes on bare metal hosts can burst to cloud with a native storage layer providing a flexible infrastructure with predictable performance for core and edge applications.


Fully hybrid deployments can also be achieved with edge located, cloud connected storage that can be directly mounted to hyperscale compute instances to achieve near infinite compute scale while meeting strict data storage performance and compliance needs.
