How Does Pure as-a-Service Work?

Pure provides customers with storage options and flexibility unmatched by any legacy storage provider and on par with other top cloud providers in the industry. With Pure as-a-Service, you get access to the following services:

  • Pure Cloud Block Store™: A powerful cloud block storage integration tool that allows you to manage your AWS cloud storage alongside FlashArray™ and FlashBlade<
  • Pure1®: A storage management platform that gives you visibility and insight into all of your storage resources both on-premises and in the cloud

Pure1 automatically adds capacity when you exceed 80% of your allocation. When you subscribe to Pure as-a-Service the storage management platform maintains 25% headroom (at no extra cost) above your actual usage, making sure that there is always elastic and available capacity when needed so you never outgrow your storage.
