“We’re delighted to recognize these solutions as qualified for Anthos under our new Anthos Ready Storage Initiative, and we look forward to working with Pure Storage to drive customer success across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.”

The primary computing environment for Anthos relies on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), which allows customers to take advantage of Kubernetes and cloud technology both in their datacenters and in the cloud. Pure Service Orchestrator (PSO) integrates with container orchestration frameworks like Kubernetes, so customers can deliver persistent storage support for containerized applications, on-demand. Pure Service Orchestrator pools multiple FlashArray and FlashBlade systems supporting block-based and file-based storage arrays under one CSI driver deployment, to allow intelligent volume placement across that pool.
