Pure Storage Launch New Top End FlashArray Model, Bringing Power and Scale with Unparalleled Simplicity to the Enterprise

Pure Storage, the IT pioneer that delivers storage as-a-service in a multi-cloud world, today announced FlashArray//XL, the newest member of the FlashArray family, designed for mission-critical, platinum tier enterprise applications – from massive databases to containerized and cloud-native apps. FlashArray//XL delivers unmatched performance and scale with a nearly 80% improvement in IOPS.

With the pace of business only increasing, application demand can shoot up in an instant and the need for new apps to be deployed requires IT to work in hours, not months. Previously, the largest enterprises had to scale their top tier applications with legacy technology that required high management complexity, high power and energy costs, and disruptive forklift upgrades.

Shawn Hansen, VP and GM, FlashArray, Pure Storage, commented “Customers expect a new, modern way to scale enterprise storage. FlashArray//XL is a clear shot across the bow of legacy storage vendors by combining high-end scale of a true enterprise-class array with the scale-out agility of the cloud operating model.”

Eric Burgener, Research Vice President, Enterprise Infrastructure Practice, IDC, said, “For top tier applications like massive databases, enterprises need maximum performance and density, but they also want the control of their own datacenter and the agility and flexibility of the cloud.  Enterprise-class storage solutions like the FlashArray//XL that are coupled with the cloud operating model give customers the best of both worlds.”

James Laming, VP, Global Head of Infrastructure, Options Technology, said, “The announcement of the FlashArray//XL series underscores Pure’s unwavering commitment to delivering market leading storage services. It is exciting and exceptionally gratifying to see a partner with the same dedication to supporting even the most demanding workloads. It’s clear that the new //XL platform will ensure continued support to our growing and expanding data services portfolio and ecosystem.”
