Pure Storage is doubling down on NVMe, a specification designed to speed up storage throughput, and offering a enterprise all-flash array with NVMe.
The array, dubbed FlashArray//X, includes Purity DirectFlash software and DirectFlash Modules. The aim of the technology is to ditch performance bottlenecks that prohibit raw flash from being used and optimized efficiently.
Matt Kixmoeller, vice president of product at Pure Storage, said the aim with FlashArray//X is to make NVMe more mainstream. "NVMe today is used with more expensive systems and niche plays," said Kixmoeller. "We want to democratize it."
