It’s that time of the year again. But admittedly, this is not a typical year. Even still, as sure as the tide comes in, VMworld also comes around. And if VMworld is here, Pure Storage® will be there… albeit virtually. So what have Pure and VMware been up to? Well, a lot!
It’s been an exciting year at the intersection of Pure and VMware. We’ve had quite a few things in the works since the last VMworld:
That’s what we’ve been up to off the top of my head. The key takeaway is that we’re actively working on every single one of these updates for improvement and enhancement.
We’ll announce many of these updates either before or during VMworld. So if there’s something you think we might have missed, just wait a few weeks and join us at VMworld to find out what’s new.
What are our focuses this year at VMworld?
Mark your calendar: VMworld takes place online September 29–October 1. Register for the event and make sure you don’t miss these great sessions from the Pure team:
Hybrid Cloud Kubernetes with vSphere & Pure Storage Cloud Block Store
Provide persistent storage for containerized workflows across the hybrid cloud with data mobility. Understand how Pure FlashArray™ integrates to provide storage for Tanzu Kubernetes Grid and how Pure Cloud Block Store integrates with Pure Service Orchestrator™ for AWS-hosted Kubernetes. [HCP2891S]
Automating VMware Management of Your Pure Storage Array
Managing today’s infrastructure often requires more familiarity across a larger complement of infrastructure. Solutions that are simple and integrated are a key differentiator that helps administrators accomplish tasks quickly, easily, and consistently, allowing them to achieve their goals successfully. Attend this session to learn more about how Pure Storage extends the simplicity & ease of storage management and application flexibility, up the stack to VMware administrators with integrations for provisioning and management. [HCP2196]
Core Storage Best Practice Deep Dive: Configuring the New Storage Features
It’s important to know configuration best practices with all the available storage arrays and connectivity protocols. VMware vSphere 7 includes new core storage features and the correct setup is critical to optimum performance and resilience. [HCI1691]
vSphere Cloud Native Storage with Virtual Volumes and SPBM: Better Together
VMware joining the Kubernetes bandwagon with a cloud-native storage solution has put steady focus on extending support for external storage with VMware vSphere vVols and software policy-based management, plus continued support for VMware vSAN. [HCI2089]
vSphere Virtual Volumes (vVols): Modernize Your External Storage:
New to vVols? This session will go from level 100 to 200 and show how vVols can modernize the external storage in your virtual environment. See how vVols work and can reduce operation overhead, allow greater scale, and help you escape managing LUNs and volumes. [HCI1692]
Better Together: Site Recovery Manager with Virtual Volumes
Site Recovery Manager 8.3 enables you to manage vSphere vVols array-based replication with VMware’s storage policy-based management, plus easily orchestrate application recovery and migration. Learn about the advanced replication and storage policy capabilities of Pure. [HCI1455]
Modernize & Optimize ML/AI/HPC Applications with vSphere Tanzu
Most ML, AI, and HPC apps run on static bare-metal environments, lacking agility and efficiency. If you want to run in hybrid cloud environments, VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid can help modernize these legacy workloads and shorten the path to innovation. [HCP1545]
