Jon Owings

Director Cloud Architecture, Pure Storage

Who knew that the best coffee break conversations would end up happening online? Each month, Pure’s Coffee Break series invites experts in technology and business to chat about the themes driving today’s IT agenda - much more ‘podcast’ than ‘webinar’. This is no webinar or training session—it’s a freewheeling conversation that’s as fun as it is informative and the perfect way to break up your day. While we’ll wander into Pure technology, our goal is to educate and entertain rather than sell.

This month, host Andrew Miller welcomes Pure’s Director of Cloud Native Strategy, Jon Owings who has…well…an interesting background. You might even identify with some of it.

Over the years he’s wandered from hands-on Citrix experience to networking (CCNA) to virtualization (his blog is still https://blog.2vcps.com/) to storage to focusing now on Kubernetes, modern databases, and many things that frankly don’t relate to storage hardware. Even more, interestingly, he does that while working at Pure and staying hands-on.

We’ll spend the first half exploring Jon’s career transitions - hopefully helping those who have similar backgrounds and are looking to embrace what’s new and coming in the IT landscape.

In the second half, we’ll explore updates from last year’s Coffee Break focused on Kubernetes and Portworx including:

  • Portworx Data Services - modern databases deployed as a service. No Pure hardware required (although supported).
  • Container Backup as a Service and our partnership with AWS
  • Portworx + Pure Capabilities
  • Pure Service Orchestrator (PSO) - Where It’s Been & Where It’s Going
  • Portworx Enterprise Updates

Whether a Pure customer or not, we’re all navigating industry changes together - hopefully, our personal experiences can help you as you navigate your own career and our current capabilities will help with where our IT organization is going.
