Cloud Block Storage

Cloud Block Storage for Data Protection and Mobility

Pure Cloud Block Store™ delivers seamless data mobility, data protection, and a consistent experience—in AWS and now in Microsoft Azure.

Gain Data Infrastructure Efficiency

Your data uses less cloud storage infrastructure due to Pure’s industry-leading data compression, thin provisioning, and deduplication. Benefit from snapshots and clones that consume no additional cloud storage. See how it works.

Increase Resilience with Cloud Block Storage

Achieve high availability with efficient, reliable replication. Maintain synchronization between replicas and master data sets. Pure Cloud Block Store delivers continuous uptime, always-on encryption, regulatory compliance, and better TCO.

Use Cloud Block to Eliminate Silos

Eliminate data silos with seamless data mobility across heterogeneous environments, promoting better collaboration. Pure Cloud Block Store’s common data plane delivers a consistent user experience, on premises with FlashArray™ and with AWS or Azure.

Efficient DevTest with Cloud Block Storage

The ability to make snapshots and clones in the cloud means you don’t have to deploy new on-premises hardware for testing. Pure Cloud Block Store snapshots and clones consume negligible cloud storage, improving software time to market and TCO.

What is cloud block storage?

Block storage (also known as block-level storage) is the preferred data storage format used by storage area networks (SANs) found in data centers. Cloud block storage is block storage that's stored in the cloud.

People also ask:

1. What are the benefits of cloud block storage?

Benefits of cloud block storage include:

  • Software defined with consistent data plane
  • Efficient industry leading data reduction
  • Data mobility eliminates data silos
  • Consistent UX with same APIs on-prem and in the cloud
  • Data resiliency with high availability within and across availability zones
  • Business continuity with synchronized data across availability zones

2. What are cloud block storage use cases?

Cloud block storage brings the benefits of on-premises SANs to the cloud. Here are some examples of how you can leverage Pure Cloud Block Store:

3. How does cloud block storage work?

 In block storage, data is stored as fixed-sized blocks of data that each get a unique identifier. This method decouples data from its storage environment, allowing the underlying storage system to efficiently retrieve and reassemble data no matter where it gets stored across on-premises and multicloud environments.
