Us here at Pure congratulate Cisco. In today’s evolving business environment, storage demand is growing rapidly. Given the impact of cloud, Big Data and the Internet of Things, enterprise IT professionals require Storage Area Networks (SANs) that are easily upgradable, high-performing and reliable. Not only must SANs support standard storage interfaces, they also need to be easy to manage. Varied requirements from enterprise customers stacked together create a tall order for storage vendors.

To raise the bar for storage networking with the most scalable, programmable fabric, Cisco extends its storage portfolio with the new MDS 9718 switch. Pure Storage salutes Cisco for introducing the industry’s highest port density switch to enable consolidation, rapid provisioning and room for future growth, thereby validating the need within our joint customer base.
