What is a flexible storage ownership subscription?

A flexible ownership subscription combines features of a traditional storage purchase with a consumption model. Similar to a traditional purchase, the storage is owned and maintained by the user. Unlike traditional purchases, the user pays based on their utilization of storage capacity via a subscription. Customers can increase the amount of storage they would like to consume at any time as their needs evolve. This subscription also includes hardware upgrades and SaaS-delivered software updates designed to keep  storage modern. This unique consumption model allows for lower upfront costs and better asset utilization for organisations that need to maintain ownership of their IT infrastructure based on business or regulatory need.

People also ask:

1. How does site level billing optimisation work?

Evergreen//Flex subscription pools all arrays with the same controller model (e.g., FlashArray X50), deployed at a single install location as a singular endpoint for capacity usage and billing optimisation. The reserve commit and on-demand usage is calculated at the pool level instead of at an individual array level. This helps reduce the impact of on-demand usage fluctuations for a single array and also simplifies the invoicing/billing process.

2. What is data pack mobility?

Data pack mobility gives customers the freedom to move storage capacity—non-disruptively—between compatible arrays with active Evergreen//Flex subscriptions. This industry-first capability enables customers to optimise their fleet and reduce spend by moving capacity to the workload.

3. What is the reserve commit and on-demand usage?

Reserve commit refers to the amount of storage capacity that a customer subscribes to as part of the Evergreen//Flex subscription. The reserve commit must meet the minimum level specified for the chosen hardware configuration and can be increased anytime during the Evergreen//Flex contract term. The reserve commit is billed in advance at the corresponding Reserve Rate.

On-demand usage is the capacity consumed above the reserve commitment and is billed in arrears at the corresponding on-demand rate.

4. What other subscriptions are offered by Pure Storage?
