(The Hosting News) – CentraComm, a leading managed IT security and network services company, announced it has joined the Pure Storage® Authorized Reseller program.
Pure Storage has been delivering a breakthrough storage experience designed to meet the rigorous resiliency, scalability, efficiency and performance requirements of enterprise customers in diverse markets, and for a variety of high performance workloads and applications for more than four years.
The Pure Storage FlashArray was the industry’s first all-flash enterprise storage array to successfully drive the cost of flash memory below that of legacy spinning disk, delivering the innumerable benefits of all-flash at a price point the mainstream could afford. Now in its fourth generation release, FlashArray is the industry’s most mature, stable, and production-hardened all-flash storage array available on the market today.
“We all realize that flash is incredibly fast – it will definitely speed up performance on everything we do – but speed was not the main driver for choosing Pure Storage. They took a common technology, MLC flash, and wrapped great software around it to create a great customer experience,” said Greg Miller, Chief Information Officer at CentraComm. “With immediate benefits like always-on inline deduplication and compression and encryption, we have solved several issues by storing data in just one platform.”
“FlashArray costs less, and yet delivers 10x or better performance, power and space utilization, reliability, and simplicity of operations. The OpEx savings alone versus traditional disk arrays allows our FlashArray to pay for itself in its first 3-4 years in the data center, and we still have years of productive service to deliver after traditional mechanical storage has been written off,” said Scott Dietzen, CEO at Pure Storage.
“Storage for the enterprise today has been a burden and needed to be simplified. With the ease of administration, expansion and upgrading we can now focus on other areas of the data center. We are able to decrease the number of VMWare host, increase our workloads and reduce the physical footprint and power in the data center. The list goes on but not choosing to look at a technology that I believe will be an industry disruptor/game changer is to ignore Moore’s Law in the evolution of any technology,” said Miller.
