Pure Cloud Block Store provides seamless data mobility across on-premises and cloud environments with a consistent experience across on-premises, cloud, and hybrid cloud.
It can now be purchased from the Azure Marketplace.
Running the same operating system as Pure’s FlashArray systems means Pure Cloud Block Store provides benefits including data reduction, built-in snapshots, thin provisioning, and high availability, as well as providing seamless data mobility between clouds with consistent APIs and automation, so developers can build once and then deploy across their hybrid cloud.
Pure’s data reduction capabilities reduce storage costs, and the reduced management overhead compared with cloud-native block storage eliminates the need to manage input/output operations per second (IOPS), bandwidth, and capacity of individual volumes.
Pure Cloud Block Store ensures applications and data are resilient to single points of failure, while the Pure Validated Design for Microsoft SQL Server Business Resilience delivers business continuity for SQL Server databases running on premises with disaster recovery in the cloud by using Pure Cloud Block Store for Microsoft Azure as a high availability target.
The common dataplane across multicloud environments supports application portability as well as dev/test, disaster recovery and high availability solutions in the cloud.
Pure Storage vice president of product for FlashArray Dan Kogan said “Pure has been delivering the cloud experience from day one. With Pure Cloud Block Store on Azure, we are continuing to bridge the cloud divide, helping customers achieve the reliability, resilience, performance, and operational simplicity they expect from Pure wherever their data lives.”
Microsoft Azure Storage partner director Aung Oo, said, “Pure and Microsoft Azure share the belief that our customers deserve a seamless experience whether their infrastructure is on-premises, hybrid, multicloud, or at the edge.
"Pure Cloud Block Store on Azure, which is built with unique Azure capabilities including shared disks and Ultra Disk Storage, provides a comprehensive high availability and performant solution. We are pleased to welcome Pure Cloud Block Store to the Azure Marketplace to bring increased data mobility and protection to our joint customers.”
