Pure upgrades FlashBlade software

By

Storage vendor Pure Storage has released Purity 3.0 for FlashBlade, the operating software for its scale-out file and object storage system.

Purity 3.0 provides file replication with the option of making the destination read-only for data validation and DR testing, and object replication to other FlashBlades or to Amazon S3.

Filesystem rollback allows fast recovery of file systems from snapshots.

Users connecting to NFS v4.1 file systems on FlashBlade can be authenticated via Kerberos.

Security, alerting, and monitoring capabilities have all been enhanced.

"FlashBlade is so unique because it is designed from the ground-up for tomorrow's data pipelines and real-time analytics applications, with simplicity, ease of use and performance in mind – something that legacy storage vendors struggle with," said Pure Storage vice president and general manager of FlashBlade Matt Burr.

"It delivers multi-dimensional performance and provides an unparalleled customer experience in the scale-out, unified file and object storage market."

Managed service provider Options IT lists the ASX among its partners.

Options IT vice president of product-managed colocation Micah Kroeze said "our clients adopt technology quickly and demand the highest levels of reliability, performance, and time to market. Pure continues to enable our growing client base to leverage the latest in block, file, and now high-performance object storage both within our data centres and across our global backbone.

"Pure allows us to scale smoothly and deliver a flexible consumption model to our dynamic client base, ensuring that our clients benefit rapidly from new developments in storage technology. Our recent expansion into Pure Storage FlashBlade technology, in addition to driving innovative product development within Options, provides our customers the opportunity to maximise data and analytics for a competitive edge in the financial services industry."
