Pure Storage Unveils Purity 6.0 for FlashArray, Delivering Agile Data Services to Enable the Modern User Experience

New Features Include Active Disaster Recovery Built on New Continuous Replication Technology and Unified Block and File Capabilities

Pure Storage, the IT pioneer that delivers storage as-a-service in a multi-cloud world, announced Purity 6.0 for FlashArray™, the latest version of Pure’s flagship suite of software. Engineered with the modern organization in mind, these new agile data services provide customers with an efficient way to store, safeguard, manage, access and mobilize their data with strategic consumption models custom-tailored to their needs.

Unified protocol support with NFS and SMB and active disaster recovery

Purity 6.0 further simplifies modern infrastructure with a unified block-and-file solution designed to help solve infrastructure challenges, including storage silos and sprawl, which impact modern business across every industry. With a host of new agile data services, Pure customers can immediately leverage two key new capabilities -- unified protocol support with NFS and SMB, along with active disaster recovery built on brand new continuous replication technology. As part of the Evergreen Storage™ subscription model, these new features require no additional licenses, no added support costs, and zero added complexity.

Flexible consumption models represent the bedrock of Pure’s modern data experience,” said Prakash Darji, General Manager, FlashArray. “We’ve had the tremendous advantage of being purpose-built for the modern era -- our solutions are designed for massive amounts of data, to be fundamentally upgradeable without disruption, and to be compatible with future innovation so that our customers never have to wait for the latest tools. Purity 6.0 represents the next and most logical step in delivering that continued value to our customers -- services that can be consumed in whatever way best fits the customer need at any given moment.”

Saving the trouble and expenses of running two incompatible envirnoments

Pure’s new unified block and file capabilities on FlashArray save customers the trouble and expense of running two incompatible environments. They are designed to simplify operations for organizations that primarily run block storage but still require or utilize separate network-attached storage. This enables customers to run all workloads within the Purity operating environment, leverage the same data layer, user-interface, pool of capacity, and benefit from Pure’s industry-leading global data reduction.

Similarly, the new continuous replication feature, ActiveDR, helps Pure customers improve their business resiliency without the cost and complexity of third-party disaster recovery software add-ons. This new active-passive replication technology addresses a major business requirement by protecting critical applications with a near-zero recovery point objective (RPO). Now customers have the ability to leverage synchronous, active-active, replication with ActiveCluster™, snapshot-based asynchronous replication, and now continuous replication all on the same Purity platform.

Enterprises with big data or machine learning requirements will still assign those workloads to FlashBlade®, but for other use cases and for many smaller businesses FlashArray now addresses all data storage needs.

Purity 6.0 delivers additional enhancements, capabilities and solutions that customers can adopt immediately, non-disruptively, and as part of their Evergreen subscription to innovation.

Highlights from this release include:  

  • Expanded backup to cloud options with CloudSnap for Google Cloud Platform: A technical preview, this capability adds cloud storage targets on the Google Cloud Platform where Pure Storage’s space-efficient snapshots can be replicated for offsite storage and reuse.
  • Categorize data sets for easier identification with public volume tags
  • Ensure data is safeguarded and access is controlled using RSA’s two-factor and multi-factor authentication
  • Effectively plan for capacity expansion with Pure1® click-to-quote
  • Protect critical workloads using ActiveDR with the following validated designs:
  •     - Virtualized workloads using ActiveDR support for VMware Site Recovery Manager

        - Business critical applications such as: Microsoft SQL, Oracle, SAP, and MongoDB

  • Protect unstructured data on Purity’s new file services with Veeam and CommVault backup solutions

For Pure Storage, the introduction of native file system support on its FlashArray will be a boon for existing and new customers alike,” said Eric Burgener, research vice president, IDC. “Now customers can cost-effectively consolidate multiple file servers onto this unified storage platform and get the all-flash performance, ease of use, and differentiating customer experience around which the vendor built its reputation with block-based workloads over the last decade.
