Pure Storage FlashArray PURE STORAGE X50-9TB Storage and Backup Device


Designed to be as easy to use as it is powerful, Pure Storage® FlashArray™ provides unified block and file storage with enterprise performance, reliability, and availability to power your critical business services. FlashArray//X™ arrays runs everything from massive databases to modern cloud-native apps, with purpose-built solutions that scale from large-scale enterprise deployments to satellite offices.


A Pure-designed flash module that connects raw flash directly to the FlashArray storage via NVMe. Unlike traditional SSDs that use a flash controller or flash translation layer, DirectFlash Module is primarily raw flash. This design removes the performance roadblocks of SSDs used by many legacy storage architectures.


FlashArray//X moves beyond legacy SSD architectures that are architected to make flash pretend to be a hard disk. DirectFlash® within Purity speaks directly to raw NAND with a super-efficient NVMe protocol and leverages NVMe-oF over Fibre Channel or Ethernet for even faster network speeds between the array and application servers.
