Slow applications, disruptive operations, and burdensome management are just few of the issues that Small-to-Medium Enterprises have to deal with on a regular basis. IT fires consume time and resources for these organizations and prevent them from focusing on activities that grow their business. Although all-flash storage can help address these issues at their source, it has been largely out of reach due to cost. These organizations have been waiting for a storage solution that is reliable and simple – yet also affordable. We are excited to announce that the new FlashArray//m10* delivers all-flash storage starting at less than $50K and with the same enterprise-level features and extreme simplicity of the FlashArray//m family.
The FlashArray//m10 includes all software and fully supports the Evergreen Storage model, only available from Pure. With Evergreen Storage, you keep all your capacity as you grow, and you don’t re-purchase it even across product generations. Evergreen Storage means less hassle, less risk, and less cost.

For enterprises large and small alike, FlashArray//m10 offers an attractive means to flash-enable your very first key business application.
As the newest addition of the FlashArray//m family, FlashArray//m10 allows companies to start small and scale as necessary by upgrading non-disruptively to any other //m.
We’re also excited to announce that the FlashArray//m10 can also be purchased as part of a new FlashStack Mini – an and affordable converged infrastructure offering occupying just 9 rack units and designed for Small-to-Medium Enterprises. FlashStack Mini combines the FlashArray//m10 with market-leading Cisco UCS servers and networking, as well as virtualization software offerings from either Microsoft or VMware, FlashStack Mini with Microsoft Hyper-V enables Microsoft application consolidation for an on-premise cloud that is 100 percent virtualized and 100 percent all-flash.
