Cloud Block Storage for Protection and Mobility

Pure Cloud Block Store™ delivers seamless data mobility, resilience, and a consistent experience—no matter where your data lives.

Gain Efficiency with Cloud Block Storage

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.

Data Resilience and Disaster Recovery

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.

Multicloud Environment

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, no matter where your data lives.

Efficient DevTest with Cloud

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.
