Pure Storage FlashStack

An All Flash Converged Infrastructure Solution from a Leading Manufacturer

 

When one of the world’s largest networking manufacturers teams up with an innovative all flash storage developer, you end up with an incredible, comprehensive data center solution. The FlashStack is a converged infrastructure solution built with everything a data center needs to function. Pure Storage all flash arrays provide the storage. The Cisco Nexus series provides the switching, and Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) provides the compute. The FlashStack as a whole then proves to be effective, practical, and sustainable through the Cisco Validated Design Program.

The Speed of Flash Storage, the Power of Cisco UCS

Scalability
When the time comes, expand your FlashStack data center easily by purchasing additional FlashStacks.

Best of Breed Equipment
The FlashStack is built using the best hardware Cisco and Pure Storage have to offer.

Ease of Deployment
Converged infrastructure is naturally faster to deploy. The pre-validated solution includes a design guide which details any necessary integration or calibration information.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership
Due to reduced power, cooling, and space requirements, the FlashStack has a lower TCO compared to other legacy data center designs.

Forever Flash
The FlashStack qualifies for the Pure Storage Forever Flash maintenance program. Every three years, Pure Storage will replace your flash controller for free.

Evergreen Storage
Pure Storage has taken a novel approach to storage maintenance. They call it Evergreen Storage, and it provides a number of advantages. Through free flash controller replacements, the Right-Size Guarantee, and regular data consolidation, you can avod the “rip and replace” forklift refreshes common with storage renewals.
