Pure Storage expands storage-as-a-service subscription across hybrid cloud
Customers now do not need to manage multiple subscriptions or purchase separate capacity
Pure Storage is expanding its Evergreen Storage Service (ES2), aiming to provide customers with a unified subscription model across hybrid environments.
With the new launch, customers can leverage Pure’s storage-as-a-service model on-premises, hosted and in the cloud, without the need to manage multiple subscriptions or purchase separate or overlapping capacity.
“Now, Pure customers can stop purchasing CAPEX immediately with an on-premises ES2 subscription and gain the flexibility of true OPEX, pay-per-use consumption. Then, over time – with a concrete plan and strategy – organisations can move portions of that subscription to the cloud safely and easily, without any additional cost from Pure,” said Robson Grieve, chief marketing officer, Pure Storage.
Successful, modern organisations must be able to quickly and easily leverage all of the infrastructure tools at their disposal to differentiate in today’s highly competitive, data-driven market. For many, this means aligning application workloads with the most effective cloud infrastructure and the ability to glean value from data regardless of where that data lives.
In a boost to customer mobility between on-premises, co-located or hosted, and public cloud environments, a unified ES2 subscription allows customers to simply move all or any portion of their pay-per-use block storage capacity between environments without any adjustments to their contract.
A unified hybrid cloud storage as-a-service makes moves to the cloud easier, faster, and less risky by providing an integrated set of tools and APIs under a common subscription model that helps customers deploy storage with more flexibility, less complexity and less cost. Pure customers can now begin their hybrid journey anywhere on the spectrum and move their data in any direction without additional resources. Additionally, it gives users the power to easily and rapidly deploy cloud infrastructure to reduce cost and increase agility, as well as test new configurations before full deployment by moving data without the hassle of new contracts or subscriptions.
