Pure live action. 

Yep, you read that right. We’re thrilled to announce that one of the biggest events to hit the data storage industry, Pure//Accelerate 2016, will be live-streaming keynotes to the world on Monday, March 14 from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. PDT and Tuesday, March 15 from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. PDT.

Watch live as Blair Dore of Google, Raghu Raghuram of VMWare, Keith Bruce of Superbowl 50, Bill Schlough of the San Francisco Giants and Shark Tank’s very own Robert Herjavec share the keynote main stage with the next generation of enterprise storage technology. You’ll also hear from innovative Pure Storage customers like Intuit, Mercedes, Shutterfly, ServiceNow, Secure-24, The Boston Globe, Airware, Red Hawk, Casino and NY Presbyterian Hospital.

So much more than a keynote.
