OpenStack Cloud, Powered by Pure

Do it all: simplify OpenStack deployments, shorten integration times, and increase storage efficiency and speed with all-flash OpenStack solutions from Pure.

Simplify Your OpenStack Storage

Now you can deploy OpenStack on Pure Storage faster and easier than ever. The latest Pure Storage Cinder driver, part of the OpenStack core distribution, is included in Juno, Kilo and subsequent OpenStack distributions. Our driver helps you speed integration and makes your cloud deployment simpler, faster, and more resilient.

Simplify Your OpenStack Data Storage with Pure

Python Automation Toolkit

Take advantage of advanced storage features such as snapshots, replication, and capacity management for your OpenStack deployment. The Pure Storage Python™ Automation Toolkit is a pre-built open source library that extends functionality beyond that of Cinder and makes advanced storage integration faster and easier.

RESTful API: Complete Access

For full customization and access to 100% of FlashArray’s advanced storage features, our comprehensive REST API allows you to automate FlashArray management in OpenStack and other cloud environments. This foundational API is fully documented and ships with every Pure Storage system.


Pure Storage is certified with Red Hat® OpenStack Platform versions 9, 10, and 11 to provide external Cinder block storage for Nova instances. All Cinder features, such as consistency groups, snapshots, and replication, are supported.

IBM PowerVC Virtualization Center

Pure Storage can be easily integrated with the IBM PowerVC™ OpenStack platform using our Fibre Channel-based Cinder driver – allowing your Pure Storage FlashArray to provide persistent storage in Power-based environments.

Pure Supports OpenStack and the OpenStack Foundation

Pure Storage is an OpenStack Foundation Corporate Sponsor and a frequent contributor to the OpenStack community. With integrations dating back to OpenStack Folsom (September, 2012), we’re working to help simplify the use of OpenStack with all-flash storage – and to bring the benefits of FlashArray to your OpenStack cloud.
