FlashArray//m offers simple and efficient scaling: start with what you need and add capacity, performance, connectivity, or density – online and independently – as you grow. And FlashArray//m is NVMe-ready: the chassis is wired for performance with both PCIe/NVMe and SAS fabrics, and ready for NVMe flash modules and controllers. You’ll be expanding //m for a decade or more.

Performance That Grows With You

Scale FlashArray//M performance now and into the future by adding NVMe controllers as they become available, and with no disruptions. Built on an x86 architecture, our next-generation controllers keep pace with CPUs as they advance according to Moore’s Law. That means your expandability options keep up with you as you grow. And with Evergreen storage ownership program, you get a new controller every three years, free with your maintenance renewal.

Scale Capacity In a Smaller Footprint

Expand with new, higher density flash modules – inside the //M chassis or via expansion shelves. Dual-density, hot-pluggable flash modules deliver 2x capacity and performance per slot. With Pure Storage capacity consolidation, you can consolidate the data on your older external shelves into new, denser capacity flash. And in the future you'll be able to take advantage of NVMe flash modules. 


FlashArray//M NV-RAM modules enable advanced data services. They're dual-ported, hot-pluggable NVMe – an industry first when they shipped in 2015. Now, with more than 10,000 in use, they've helped deliver 99.9999% availability for //M in its first year of shipments.

Optimized for Mixed IO Connectivity

FlashArray//m controllers offer on-board I/O Modules with 12Gb/s SAS ports, 10Gb/s Ethernet ports for iSCSI or replication, and 1Gb/s Ethernet ports for management. With up to 3 slots per controller, you can mix-and-match configurable I/O Modules of 8/16Gb/s FC or 10Gb/s Ethernet iSCSI to increase connectivity.
