Virtualization Unleashed

FlashArray is so efficient, you can virtualize, accelerate, and consolidate every workload. It’s so effortless to use, you can manage it with half the staff. And with Evergreen™ Storage savings, you can afford to put FlashArray everywhere.

All in for Virtualization

Virtualize, consolidate, and automate – everything. See how Pure Storage enables you to realize the dramatic improvements in IT speed, efficiency, and flexibility that virtualization brings, with none of the performance bottlenecks common to legacy infrastructure.

Certified Blueprints

Pure Storage is a VMware Validated Design (VVD) Certified Partner Architecture for the Software-Defined Data Center. Now you can confidently build your all-flash private cloud – and accelerate time to value.


VMware Virtual Volumes running on Pure delivers unprecedented levels of management simplicity for your VMs. Now you can assure that your SLAs are met – per VM. Get fine-grained control, backup and restore, storage policy-based management, and flexible data portability, all of it per-VM. And the best part? Set it up in minutes.

Pure Storage and Microsoft Hyper-V

Consolidate all your applications on Pure Storage, and then virtualize them with Microsoft Hyper-V. Sharepoint, Exchange, SQL – and non-Microsoft apps too. Manage everything, including your Pure solution, directly from System Center.

Accelerate All Your Workloads

Low latency is the key to maximizing the potential of your virtualized applications – and disk storage simply can’t touch disruption-free flash performance. Need proof? ESG tested VMware Horizon VDI, Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Exchange, and Oracle database and data warehouse workloads on FlashArray//M for performance and resilience.

Virtualizing on Pure Storage Is Powering Customer Success

A few of the organizations we’ve helped to capture all the benefits of virtualization. 

Giants Save in Myriad Ways with Pure

The San Francisco Giants replaced complex and time-consuming legacy disk with Pure, gaining performance, resilience, and effortless management – to say nothing of all the space (racks and racks reduced to one shelf).

Service Provider Finds All They Needed In Pure

Telehouse needed storage with lower energy consumption, better performance, and higher capacity from higher data-compression rates. Pure delivered, boosting IOPs and bandwidth while dropping latency by more than 6x.

CDE Supports 1800 Schools with FlashStack

In looking for an all-flash, VMware-based converged infrastructure solution that was cost-effective and easy to manage, CDE chose FlashStack, which had a lower price, higher capacity, and much higher data reduction.
