“Welcome to AWS re:Invent 2021!” The Pure Storage® team is very much looking forward to saying that to both familiar and new faces (while fist bumping, of course) at this year’s in-person event November 29-December 3 in Las Vegas. We hope you’ll stop by our booth (#1454) and say hello.

Pure has made a lot of cloud-focused advances in 2021. We released Portworx® PX-Backup 2.1 in AWS Marketplace so that customers can easily back up and recover their Kubernetes applications, along with support for on-prem to AWS migration with Pure Cloud Block Store™ for hybrid cloud, DevTest, and disaster recovery (DR). We also have new DR and MySQL solutions for AWS Outposts.

Here are more details on what’s new at AWS Re:invent:


Portworx by Pure Storage is a market leader in cloud-native Kubernetes storage and Kubernetes data protection. An AWS Advanced Technology Partner, Portworx is the Kubernetes data services platform businesses trust to run mission-critical applications in containers in production. Only Portworx provides a fully integrated solution for persistent storage, data protection, disaster recovery, data security, cross-cloud and data migrations, and automated capacity management for applications running on Kubernetes.

And we continue to innovate. What’s new?

  • Portworx Enterprise on Amazon EKS-Anywhere provides AWS customers with a secure and highly available storage layer with consistent management across all versions of Amazon EKS. By leveraging Portworx with Amazon EKS-Anywhere, customers have a proven path to accelerate their hybrid cloud strategies.
