When it comes to public sector, government IT innovation can help Federal agencies and state and local governments operate more efficiently and effectively. That’s huge as more and more, government IT departments are asked to do more with less. And, with the rise of technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, better data capabilities are even more critical. Legacy won’t cut it here. Storage needs to be simple, seamless, and sustainable for success within any government IT operation.

Flexible Storage Helps Governments Scale in the Cloud

Governments must have a path to growth and innovation when it comes to scaling their operation and leveraging the cloud. The ability to scale operations is increasingly important for governments on the path to AI. In a survey by MeriTalk and Pure, 66% of government and business IT leaders indicated that hybrid cloud is a primary driver or important enabler for AI adoption.

That’s where Evergreen//One™ comes in. It is built to enable cloud adoption, and allows governments to easily implement a “cloud smart” strategy that protects the workloads that should remain on-premise and move others to the cloud. The cornerstones of Evergreen//One are Cloud Block Store—available on Amazon Web Services—and Pure’s Evergreen Storage model for on-premises storage infrastructure. These make Pure the first and only storage company to offer a unified subscription that enables complete flexibility across solutions both on-prem and in the cloud.

Do More with Shrinking Government Budgets

It is no secret that government budgets are tight. They’re routinely asked to do more with less.

Pure is striving to enable agency transformation at all levels of government with three key characteristics for agencies today:

  •       Simple. API-defined storage services, common management tools and actionable analytics.
  •       Seamless. Storage services that can handle multiple protocols, tiers and clouds in a single environment.
  •       Sustainable. Customers buy only what they need, when they need it, and can upgrade to the latest innovation without pain or penalty.

Governments can leverage these products and services to drive data center consolidation, build multi-cloud architectures, run high availability services, and create an analytics core that operations can be built around. Innovation is a key focus for government IT leaders – and a modern approach to data management is essential as they look to drive agility and efficiency. As-a-service models offer the cost control governments demand – while enabling the flexibility across on-premise and cloud solutions.

Enter FlashArray//C, a platform that brings the power and performance of flash to environments at a more competitive cost. While many governments have relied on spinning disks or hybrid arrays because they are perceived as cost-effective, FlashArray//C offers is tailored to support those large capacity use cases where scale is more critical than sub-millisecond performance.
