Pure Storage extended collaboration with VMware, to enable mutual customers with the performance, simplicity and resiliency needed for their cloud environments. The support for VMware vSphere Metro Storage Cluster, vSphere Virtual Volumes and the VMware Validated Design, provides more options for mutual customers to help them effortlessly achieve always-on operations, increased per-VM control, and ease of deployment of their private cloud.
“We are excited to have Pure Storage, a leader in all-flash systems, in our Certified Partner Architecture program. Together we can help our mutual customers accelerate IT modernization with integrations for better manageability, availability and a software-defined data center approach to the private cloud. All powered by a high-performance storage solution to run and consolidate key mission-critical applications,” said John Gilmartin, Vice President and General Manager, Integrated Systems Business Unit, VMware. “Through these efforts, organizations can realize simplicity and reliability in an agile and validated architecture.”
Pure also now offers support for VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes 2.0. Customers virtualized on VMware can now get per-VM granular mapping to the FlashArray, which helps assure per-VM service level agreements, simplifies per-VM management and gains per-VM portability. In addition to enabling compliance, VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes on FlashArray utilizes storage policy-based management to automate provisioning of VMs and align application requirements to available FlashArray data services including highly efficient snapshots and replication. This streamlines operations and empowers the VMware administrators to gain more control with less dependency on the storage team.
“We are extremely excited about the results of our collaboration efforts with VMware over the years. Our Pure Storage on VMware SDDC reference architecture, along with support for Virtual Volumes and vSphere Metro Storage Cluster offers customers access to a simple, all-flash storage platform that delivers reliability, simplicity, efficiency and access to continuous innovation,” said Rajiev Rajavasireddy, VP of Solutions, Pure Storage. “Our partnership with VMware allows us to combine best of breed technologies to deliver a worry-free comprehensive private cloud.”
