The 10 Top SSD And Flash Storage Products Of 2018 (So Far)

Pure Storage FlashArray//X

Pure Storage used its Pure//Accelerate conference this Spring to introduce the FlashArray//X family of arrays based on end-to-end NVMe shared storage. The Mountain View, Calif.-based company's all-NVMe FlashArray//X family features five configurations, from the NVMe-ready //X10 for small application deployments to the all-NVMe //X90 with up to 3 petabytes of effective capacity in a 2U footprint with a latency of as low as 250 microseconds and the ability to unite SAN and DAS into a single, consolidated, and shared data-centric architecture.

Pure Storage also updated its Purity Operating Environment, with version 5.1 available as a non-disruptive upgrade for all FlashArray//M and FlashArray//X customers to increase data reduction by up to 20 percent. And, like all Pure Storage FlashArray//X arrays, it is built on the company's Evergreen Storage architecture for non-disruptive upgrades over time.
