Introducing FlashArray//X

Meet the next radical innovation from Pure: FlashArray//X. The first mainstream 100% NVMe enterprise all-flash array designed for the cloud era. Oh, and it’s an Evergreen™ upgrade.

Shared Accelerated Storage is Here

We’ve flipped all-flash storage on its head – again. Check out how 100% NVMe and 100% software-driven flash combine to enable unprecedented levels of performance and density in an all-flash array for mainstream enterprise environments.

Meet //X90,
the new powerhouse

At up to 2x faster than previous generation AFAs, and with up to 3PB effective in 6U, //X90 delivers maximum acceleration and consolidation for all your workloads. It’s your enterprise-in-a-box.


Purity for FlashArray is the software-defined heart of FlashArray//X, delivering rich data services, DirectFlash™ global flash management, and Evergreen improvements with every release. Purity//FA 5 delivered ActiveCluster, QoS, File, and VVols – while Purity//FA 5.1 brings up to 20% better overall data reduction efficiency and Snap to NFS.

Pure Storage is delivering the ultimate in business continuity – RPO zero and RTO zero – and it’s included with your FlashArray, or a simple Evergreen upgrade. Set up in minutes. No need for a third site. No kidding.

Accelerate Everywhere with 2X better performance

Your mission-critical business apps. Your VMs & Containers. Even your entire cloud. FlashArray//X90 accelerates all of it with 2X better performance* and latency as low as 250 microseconds.

Consolidate Everything with 25% More Effective Capacity

Not a misprint. DirectFlash™-powered FlashArray//X delivers 10:1 total efficiency and 25% greater capacity – at a lower per-TB cost*. So consolidating all your apps on //X is not only simple and worry-free, it’s incredibly cost-effective.


Here’s another market disruption from Pure: We’re offering 100% native NVMe-accelerated DirectFlash™ storage at a zero dollar premium vs conventional SAS-based SSDs. Because we’re driving to next-gen shared accelerated storage, and you can’t get there with last-gen serial-attached SCSI protocols. 

FlashArray for Every Need and Budget

FlashArray has a solution for every IT need – from entry-level workload acceleration to the 100% NVMeDirectFlash™-enabled 3PB //X90.* Start anywhere and non-disruptively upgrade capacity and performance as needed. You can’t go wrong – every FlashArray is Evergreen.

* Effective capacities.

//X is Effortless

FlashArray just works, period. For three years, the FlashArray series has delivered 99.9999% availability – inclusive of maintenance, failures, and generational upgrades. That means your data is always-on, always-fast, and always-secure. One hour install is plug-n-play simple with an all-flash array that manages itself. And FlashArray is cloud-connected, with unrivaled predictive support, and powerful analytics and protection. If FlashArray needs your attention, your smartphone will let you know.

//X Is Efficient

Get maximum consolidation with consistent sub-1ms latency for all your applications while you save 10x on power, cooling, space. And you’ll save on flash, since our industry-leading data reduction means you’ll buy a lot less capacity, today and as you expand. Nothing to configure, and no trade-offs: all data services are always-on and built-in, and the platform is fully automatable. Think cloud-like agility for your IT. 

//X Is Evergreen

FlashArray is the only storage that gets better with age – and FlashArray//X is just the latest proof. //X delivers the unprecedented power of DirectFlash™ and 100% NVMe connectivity, and yet it’s a seamless, non-disruptive upgrade from any FlashArray. It’s all part of Evergreen Storage, our revolutionary ownership model that, like SaaS, delivers continuous innovations in software and hardware to you with no forklift upgrades and no data migrations.
