Pure Wins CRN’s ARC Category of Enterprise Network Storage Hardware

Pure Storage has swept an entire category in CRN’s 2023 Annual Report Card (ARC) for the second year in a row.


It is so rewarding to perform well in reviews by CRN and it feels amazing that Pure Storage has swept an entire category in CRN’s 2023 Annual Report Card (ARC)…again

From One to Thousands

Our model is a partner-centric business model, and it always has been. We started working with Resellers when we launched our first product over a decade ago, and have expanded our ecosystem to include thousands of partners across all routes to market: Distributors, Global System Integrators, Managed Service Providers, Technology Alliances, and Resellers. Our Partner Program continues to evolve to enhance profitability and to reward those partners who see the value in our solutions.  

Top Vendor in a Tough Category

The CRN ARC is a renowned award that allows partners to rate vendors across different categories that demonstrate how those vendors enable the channel to grow through product innovation and partner relations. Just as in 2022, Pure Storage is again honored to win another entire ARC category. We’ve been named the top vendor for Enterprise Network Storage Hardware, including: 

  • Product Innovation
  • Support
  • Partnership
  • Managed & Cloud Services

We invest meaningfully and intentionally across the entire portfolio to deliver market-leading storage and data management technology while considering the future needs of our customers and partners.
