In the era of intelligence, data is the most critical asset, delivering competitive edge for enterprises that harness it. FlashBlade™ is the industry’s first to be purpose-built for modern analytics. See how we did it.
Modern workloads, like machine learning and Spark, are massively parallel – and designed to run on parallel computers with parallel storage for the highest performance. FlashBlade is architected from the ground-up for modern data analytics – delivering powerful cloud-era flash that’s fast, big, and simple.
5x bigger, 5x faster – yet still phenomenally simple. Imagine the possibilities with a huge 8PB namespace, 75 GB/s read, 25 GB/s write, 7.5M IOPs, an integrated 100 GB/s fabric, but just 1 IP address. And, as always, it’s completely Evergreen. Beta available now.
Three components combine to deliver elastically-scalable capacity and performance.
Scale-out with DirectFlash and processing power on each Blade.
Purity for FlashBlade drives scale, density, and simplicity.
Low-latency, software-defined 320Gb/s Ethernet fabric.
Just a few of the reasons FlashBlade is unprecedented.
Scale-out everything online and instantly by simply adding blades. Each blade adds capacity, performance, metadata scale, NV-RAM, and client connections.
FlashBlade includes a built-in GUI and CLI, as well as our Pure1 cloud-based management and support platform. A single administrator can manage a FlashBlade deployment of any size.
DirectFlash ensures that no operation is ever waiting for access. FlashBlade accelerates large-block and small-block IO, and makes both user IO and metadata operations flash-fast.
Blades are deployed in N+2 redundant fashion to protect against flash or full Blade loss. When Blades fail, the system automatically heals-around them, returning FlashBlade to full resiliency.
High performance fabric with object messaging and distributed transaction protocol to ensure fast and reliable communication between Purity instances running on each blade.
75% of NFS operations are metadata-only operations, like GetAttrs. FlashBlade implements a massively distributed metatdata database, used by all layers of the system, which is independently queryable for powerful analytics.
Drowning in aggregates, volumes, pools, and caches? Petabyte-scale storage has never been this easy.
Deploy as a single 4U appliance, with a minimum of 7 blades. All networking is internal, and all software included. No tuning or configuration necessary.
Scale out by inserting new blades into the system. Blades are ultra-low latency, 8, 17, and 52TB capacity, and hot-pluggable. No pre-configuration or planning required.
With a built-in GUI and CLI, as well as cloud-based management and support from Pure1, a single administrator can manage a FlashBlade deployment of any size.
