Pure Storage Brings Block Storage to Microsoft Azure


Pure Storage has announced the general availability of Pure Cloud Block Store on Microsoft Azure Marketplace. With a common dataplane across multicloud environments, customers can move to the cloud on their terms, allowing for seamless application portability to the cloud or the ability to complement on-premises workloads with Dev/Test, Disaster Recovery and High Availability solutions in the cloud.

Pure Cloud Block Store provides seamless data mobility across on-premises and cloud environments with a consistent experience, regardless of where data lives – on premises, cloud, hybrid cloud, or multicloud.

“From global enterprises to ground-breaking startups, Pure Storage is trusted by thousands of customers worldwide. Storage consumption has grown at an exponential rate and the ability to meet customer demand is critical now. With our Cloud Block Store on Azure, Pure will continue to support partners, enterprises, and organizations with their block storage needs, offering modern cloud storage infrastructure and Pure’s industry-leading data compression, thin provisioning, and deduplication. Pure is committed to deliver seamless data mobility, resilience, and a consistent experience wherever their data lives.” – Ramanujam Komanduri, Country Manager, Pure Storage India

Because Pure Cloud Block Store runs the same operating system as Pure’s industry-leading FlashArray systems, customers are able to get all of the benefits of an enterprise-grade storage platform including data reduction, built-in snapshots, thin provisioning, and high availability, natively in the cloud and with the added benefit of seamless data mobility between clouds. It delivers consistent APIs and automation between on-premises and cloud, enabling developers to build once and deploy across their hybrid cloud.

Pure Cloud Block Store enhances cloud storage reliability by ensuring that applications and data are resilient to single points of failure. Also announced today, the Pure Validated Design for Microsoft SQL Server Business Resilience delivers business continuity for mission critical SQL Server databases running on premises and enables disaster recovery in the cloud by leveraging the new Pure Cloud Block Store for Microsoft Azure as a high availability target. With SQL Server and the combination of FlashArray//X, FlashArray//C, and Pure Cloud Block Store, customers can achieve the highest levels of application availability, ensuring business continuity for their most important SQL Server workloads.

Finally, when it comes to cost-effectiveness, Pure Storage says cloud-native customers can see meaningful cost savings through Pure’s industry leading data reduction capabilities and via reduced management overhead typically associated with cloud-native block storage by eliminating the need to manage IOPS, bandwidth and capacity of individual volumes. Its industry-leading data efficiency means customers can buy less capacity in the cloud without compromising on enterprise storage features and flexibility.

Pure’s Subscription Services include the Evergreen program and unified subscription, which delivers on-premises solutions and Pure’s Cloud Block Store under a single consumption experience. Pure’s unified subscription is a true enterprise class utility that delivers ultimate flexibility for storage consumption.
