Flash Memory

What is Flash Memory?

Flash Memory is non-volatile memory which can be electrically erased and reprogrammed. Today, flash memory is ubiquitous: from small computing devices, embedded systems, smartphones, and USB drives – all the way up to enterprise-class all-flash arrays. Flash technology offers numerous benefits, including a smaller footprint and lower power consumption in data centers, better performance and durability, and faster scalability.  

Pure Storage all-flash storage meets the availability, reliability and scaling requirements of the enterprise, while keeping price per GB below that of disk – thus making possible cost-effective and widespread deployment. When compared to traditional disk arrays, FlashArray offers a tightly-coupled software (Purity Operating Environment) and is:

• 10X faster (on both IOPS and latency)

• 10X more efficient in power, space, and cooling

• More reliable on enterprise workloads

• So simple that it installs in minutes

• Lower in cost
