Pure Storage, an IT pioneer that delivers advanced data storage technology and services, reaffirmed at Pure//Accelerate techfest22 its commitment to delivering simple, reliable and scalable storage with the introduction of Evergreen//Flex, a fleet-level Evergreen architecture that extends Pure’s Evergreen technology to the Pure portfolio.
By unlocking and moving stranded storage capacity to where it is needed most, Evergreen//Flex enables unrivaled storage efficiency and grows Pure’s portfolio of Evergreen-based subscription services.
The inflexible, labor-intensive delivery of traditional storage has challenged organizations embarking on transformation – from high costs, short technology refresh cycles, forklift upgrades and storage rebuys to unplanned downtime, high-risk data migration and overall data storage complexity.
Global enterprises are on a path to embracing flexible, consumption-based operating models and are increasingly investing in modern technologies and services that optimize for stronger value over time.
To support customers in this journey, Pure redefined antiquated business models underpinning traditional storage infrastructure, enabling enterprises to bring data storage capacity where it is needed most, ultimately driving flexibility and efficiency across the industry.
Pioneered in 2015, Pure’s subscription-based Evergreen Storage program paved the way for the new era of IT ownership by delivering a true subscription to innovation. Evergreen prioritizes cost efficiencies, a longer, sustainable technology lifecycle and modernization without disruption.
Since its launch, the program has delivered more than 10,000 non-disruptive controller upgrades to more than 3,000 customers. Recognizing the need for further flexibility and transparency across storage, Pure launched a true consumption-based service model for storage, Evergreen//One (formerly Pure as-a-Service), in 2018.
To advance its leadership in delivering Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) while supporting customers where they are, Pure is expanding its portfolio of Evergreen offerings:
- Evergreen//Forever (formerly Evergreen Gold) – Evergreen//Forever offers organizations traditional appliance ownership with a subscription to software, ever-modern hardware, and customer experience. Evergreen//Forever ensures organizations are benefiting from a modern infrastructure subscription to support a system that gets better over time.
- Evergreen//Flex – A fleet-level Evergreen architecture, offering users a way of running storage efficiently while saving power. Evergreen//Flex provides the flexibility and adaptability to move performance and stranded capacity to where data and applications need it most, with the security and control that comes from ownership.
- Evergreen//One (formerly Pure as-a-Service) – Evergreen//One offers organizations a consumption-based service model for storage, delivering flexibility, transparency, and simplicity, along with proactive monitoring and non-disruptive upgrades while satisfying performance and usage SLAs.
