Consuming Your Data Cloud Like SaaS: Evergreen and Beyond

Companies large and small, in nearly every vertical market, all face common challenges.  They have business-critical data that needs to be stored, protected and managed. They need it to be available to their employees, partners and often their customers.  

While this goal seems simple, such companies face many challenges both internally and externally.  First, many of them are facing limited human and financial resources, so they need the solutions to be simple and easy to manage. Next, they often struggle with legacy IT systems that need to be continually upgraded and updated.  Additionally, they rarely have a crystal ball that gives them the ability to forecast their needs, so the purchasing and procurement process can be time consuming and inefficient and often addresses the peak or ‘worst case’ scenario rather than the expected day-to-day usage.

These challenges can cause companies to spend significant resources on managing infrastructure such as storage, rather than managing their businesses. The process can be both frustrating and debilitating for the company.

Fortunately, Pure Storage offers several product offerings to resolve these challenges.

With Evergreen Storage, Pure has eliminated the headaches presented by traditional storage forklift-upgrades and data migrations.  Evergreen Storage provides non-disruptive upgrades across generations of products. Many customers have upgraded through 3, 4 or even 5 generations without a single period of planned downtime OR impact to performance!

Pure’s new Right-Size Guarantee eliminates the need to guess at storage efficiency and how much raw storage to buy.  Pure takes on that risk, so you will always be guaranteed to have the storage you asked for.

Finally, with Evergreen Storage Service (ES2), you can now consume storage resources on demand.  Regardless of your storage requirements, you can rest assured that you won’t run out of capacity.  You can scale as-needed without having to forecast your storage needs or purchase new storage assets. Better yet, your storage is “elastic” so you can reduce your storage usage and pay for what you use. Your usage and your billing will align with each other.
