Pure Storage drives software-as-a-service
Vendor moves to Evergreen Storage programme to SaaS providers
Pure Storage, a solid-state array vendor, has announced it has continued customer momentum among SaaS providers.
The vendor said performance, simplicity and non-disruptive upgrades delivered through Pure's one-of-a-kind Evergreen Storage programme provide SaaS companies with the modern platform needed to reach new customers and industries with improved service level agreements and faster time to market, as well as significantly reduce operational expense.
According to Pure storage, the need for ever-greater agility and efficiency has driven an explosion in the SaaS industry, while at the same time customer expectations for the tools and services SaaS providers offer are at an all-time high.
Matt Kixmoeller, VP of Product, Pure Storage, said: "SaaS has become a hyper-competitive market, driven by ever-increasing consumer expectations. As the world becomes increasingly more saturated with SaaS, a concurrent and rapid move to all-flash, hybrid cloud environments is also in process - a confluence of two massive trends, with one dramatically enabling the other. For modern SaaS providers, performance is key, and an all-flash infrastructure represents a major competitive advantage."
Pure said companies that implement SaaS to support mission-critical business functions are reliant on the performance, uptime and capabilities of the underlying data platform on which the application is run. "With best-in-class performance and six nines of availability, Pure Storage allows SaaS providers to commit to SLAs that beat the competition, with confidence," Kixmoeller added.
