Data is the most valuable asset in an organization today. However, slow and complex legacy storage systems often hold data back from being put to use. FlashBlade is the industry's most advanced file and object storage platform ever, a data hub built to consolidate data silos like backup appliances and data lakes – to accelerate tomorrow’s discoveries and insights.
There are two types of storage systems. One is optimized to store data. The other is optimized to deliver it. One is engineered with legacy technologies, like spinning disk or retrofit software. The other is a modern system, architected from the ground up to be massively parallel, thus eliminating serial bottlenecks that hold data back. This modern storage is FlashBlade™ from Pure Storage.
From artificial intelligence to analytics, data is at the center of today’s innovation. Organizations are often hindered by legacy infrastructure, which prevents their data from moving at the speed of their business. FlashBlade is the industry’s most advanced scale-out storage, architected to accelerate modern workloads and simplify Infrastructure.
“Pure Storage FlashBlade is about 10 times faster out of the box, with no specific tuning or effort. It enabled us to boost our GPU from about 20% average utilization to close to 100% utilization.”
— Jeremy Barnes, Chief Architect
Flashblade – Powered by three industry firsts
BladeCompute and network integrated with DirectFlash™ technology – hotplug blades into the system to add capacity and performance.
Purity//FbThe heart of FlashBlade, architected on a massively distributed key-value pair database for limitless scale and performance with simplicity.
Elastic FabricPowered by an innovative converged fabric, FlashBlade delivers up to 1.5Tb/s aggregate bandwidth with 75 blades.
Replace racks of legacy technology with flashblade
FlashBlade delivers unprecedented performance in a small form factor. It is tuned to deliver multi-dimensional performance for any data size, structure, or access, delivering 10x or greater savings in power, space, and cooling costs.
“FlashBlade is just 4U, but provides the same performance as 50 racks of our legacy storage sitting in the same data center. It’s extraordinary.”
— Jim Dolan, Manager, HPC Worldwide Support
Everything you ever wanted in a data hub
“Our quants want to test a model, get the results, and then test another one – all day long. So a 10-20X improvement in performance is a game-changer when it comes to creating a time-to-market advantage for us.”
