Pure Storage announced a spectrum of enhancements to its hybrid cloud solutions across the VMware portfolio, enabling any enterprise to focus on innovation rather than infrastructure.
New solution enhancements from Pure help enterprises maximize their VMware investments, delivering agility and efficiency for modern applications across on-premises and cloud environments. Customers will have improved availability of their data services, enabling them to meet demanding Service-level Agreements (SLAs).
Solutions designed to accelerate hybrid cloud deployments and optimize customers’ VMware investments include:
vSphere Virtual Volumes as principal storage for VMware Cloud Foundation. VMware and Pure enable vSphere Virtual Volumes as Principal storage for VMware Cloud Foundation. Customers can now realize the value of Pure Storage and vSphere Virtual Volumes natively within VMware Cloud Foundation. FlashStack delivers the performance, availability, and economics required for a VMware Cloud Foundation hybrid cloud in a single architecture, with the simplicity of integrated application to infrastructure management.
Support for vSphere Virtual Volumes storage with Site Recovery Manager. Modern data protection is a critical component for any VMware deployment including those leveraging vSphere Virtual Volumes on Pure. For VMware infrastructure, VMware Site Recovery Manager provides an enterprise solution for automated disaster recovery. As the leader in vSphere Virtual Volumes storage, Pure co-engineered the integration of vSphere Virtual Volumes with SRM. This allows enterprises to consume vSphere Virtual Volumes on Pure while protecting their mission-critical applications from disaster.
VMware Tanzu and container integration. Pure is a VMware Design Partner for the Cloud Native Storage and vSphere Virtual Volumes programs, providing persistent storage that enables true hybrid cloud mobility for containers running on VMware. Cloud-Native Storage and vSphere Virtual Volumes enable workloads in Kubernetes environments to utilize Pure FlashArray as CSI-compliant persistent storage, bringing world-class all-flash performance and data services to containerized applications in addition to VMware vSphere environments.
NVMe-oF with vSphere 7. Pure is VMware’s Design Partner for modern data fabric support on vSphere. With vSphere 7, VMware and Pure have worked to provide native end-to-end support for NVMe over Fabrics (NVME-oF) using Pure’s DirectFlash Fabric. NVMe is a revolution in the storage world, providing lower latency and higher throughput than legacy SCSI devices. This capability unleashes the raw performance of the Pure FlashArray and maximizes performance density in the data center. Mutual customers can enjoy a modern data experience that maximizes the performance and consolidation of critical applications, VMs, and containers.
