Profile: Pure Storage Inc (PSTG.N)
Pure Storage, Inc., incorporated on October 2, 2009, provides a data platform. The Company is focused on delivering software-defined all-flash solutions that are fast and cloud-capable for customers, enabling customers to put data to work for their businesses. Its data platform replaces storage systems designed for mechanical disk with all-flash systems optimized end-to-end for solid-state memory. Its business model replaces the forklift upgrade cycle with an Evergreen Storage model. Its primary offerings include its FlashArray and FlashBlade products, inclusive of its Purity Operating Environment (Purity OE) software, its Pure1 cloud-based software, and FlashStack, its joint converged infrastructure solution with Cisco. Its customers include large and mid-size organizations across a diverse set of industry verticals, including cloud-based software and service providers, consumer Web, education, energy, financial services, governments, healthcare, manufacturing, media, retail and telecommunications. Its platform is used for a set of storage use cases, including database applications, private and public cloud infrastructure, virtual server infrastructure and virtual desktop infrastructure. Its data platform helps customers scale their businesses through real-time and accurate analytics, increase employee productivity, manage operational efficiency, and deliver user experiences to their customers and partners.
The Company's Purity OE software implements enterprise-class storage services, such as data reduction, encryption and data protection, as well as protocol services such as block, file and object. Variants of Purity OE have been optimized for both its FlashArray and FlashBlade platforms. Its Purity OE software employs variable block size data reduction algorithms. Its software implements strong data-at-rest encryption of all data, all the time, and is designed to maintain performance through failures and enables ITS arrays to be upgraded without scheduled downtime, setting new expectations for storage resiliency. The hardware underlying FlashArray and FlashBlade products is designed to manage the performance and density of flash, and optimize its advanced software services. Its platforms are designed to be modular and upgradable over time, enabling its focus of Evergreen Storage and eliminating the 3 to 5 year forklift refresh cycle of legacy storage systems. Its platform's design allows it to periodically deliver both processor and flash upgrades, and enables customers to adopt these advances without data migration, downtime or performance impact. Its platforms are designed to manage the performance of flash, leveraging native high bandwidth and low latency peripheral component interconnect express/non-volatile memory express (PCIe)/(NVMe) networking.
Pure1 is a cloud-based management and support offering that enables its customers, its support staff and its partners to seamlessly and securely collaborate to manage the reliability of the Pure Storage platform while managing management overhead. This cloud-based platform enables customers to monitor a global storage deployment from a mobile device and manages integration with other data center management solutions. Pure1's Global Insight technology also employs real-time analytics and machine learning technologies to identify issues with its platforms, enabling its support organization to resolve support incidents before they start.
The Company competes with Dell EMC, HP Enterprise, Hitachi Data Systems, IBM, Lenovo and NetApp.
