What is Cloud Based Management?

Cloud-based management is an operational model in which storage users use SaaS offerings for management tasks. In contrast to traditional storage management systems, cloud-based management does not require any on-premise software installs, increasing simplicity and reducing costs as no infrastructure needs to be deployed or updated. 

Pure1 cloud-based management enables users to manage storage globally, from anywhere, and with any mobile device. Pure1 is the common management platform for both FlashArray and FlashBlade and it is included at no additional cost - there is nothing to buy and nothing to install.
