Customer driven innovation with Pure as–a-Service: breaking boundaries and putting an end to the storage guessing game
- Ripping up the traditional storage-as-a-service (STaaS) rule book
- Delivering an industry-first offer of a flexible on-prem storage model
- Making storage as simple as a utility bill
Innovation. It’s a word used a lot in our industry, in fact we’d challenge you to find a vendor or service provider that doesn’t claim its products and solutions are indeed innovative. It’s a term so over-used that we believe many have lost sight of its true meaning. Real innovation needs to:
- Be future looking—but grounded in the immediate
- Not be afraid to take a non-traditional path to get an end result
- Truly offer a solution to an existing problem
- Be innovative: Nothing would ever change if we all just played it safe
We truly believe that we are innovative, and deliver the solutions to enable our customers to be too. This is why we’re kicking off a new series called “Innovation Done Right” that explores four of our innovative key offerings. Today the focus is on Pure as-a-Service™.
It’s not effective or efficient for organisations to constantly undertake storage refresh cycles. It requires juggling varying maintenance expirations, managing cloud contracts, and playing a guessing game about how much storage they will need in the year(s) ahead.
If the past few months have taught us anything, it’s that we don’t know what’s around the corner. And businesses deserve the flexibility and freedom to start small, or indeed start big, with the option to scale up or down depending on their needs. Businesses need complete control over where their data resides, without the bureaucratic burden of traditional STaaS. We’ve always held this view at Pure, which is why we broke ground to become the first storage company to offer a truly unified services model, delivering both on-premises and in the cloud.
Think of your utility bills: You are billed based on consumption. This is exactly what Pure as-a-Service offers you*. It’s a simple enough concept, but an innovative one in this field.
With Pure as-a-Service our insistence on simplicity is a key factor in where our innovation lies. We’ve taken the traditional (STaaS) rule book and ripped it up. With one simple, single contract we’re not only eliminating the headache of over/under provisioning and painful migration, we’re also setting you up to face the challenges of the future. Pretty innovative don’t you think?
