Pure Storage Reports Strong Q3 Business From Public Sector
Pure Storage, a developer of all-flash data storage hardware and software products, announced that its public sector business achieved all-time highs in the third quarter of 2021, as its customer base and use case portfolio grew. The business growth came as trends and developments in cloud transformation, ransomware, cybersecurity, DevOps and artificial intelligence drive modernization demand within the public sector, Pure Storage said Tuesday.
The Mountain View, California-headquartered company said it was chosen by a large agency within the Department of the Treasury to replace its legacy storage arrays with simple, scalable all-flash solutions. Pure Storage, together with a strategic partner, is providing the agency with non-disruptive upgrades via the Evergreen program.
Additionally, a core agency within the Department of Homeland Security chose the company’s FlashBlade offering to help power its advanced analytics and AI operations. This technology is central to the agency’s mission of enhancing national security through innovation, intelligence, collaboration and trust, Pure Storage said.
On the state level, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts adopted Pure-as-a-Service complete with FlashArray, FlashStack for Block Performance and Block Capacity, FlashBlade and the Portworx Suite to containerize and modernize key applications. Armed with these advancements, the Commonwealth was able to modernize its infrastructure and application to support the continuity of services to its agencies and the public, the technology firm added.
Pure Storage said that government agencies are looking to implement hybrid cloud strategies that best serve their goals, moving some workloads to the cloud while repatriating others to on-premises, with containerization becoming increasingly essential. Accelerating this further, the American Rescue Plan, CARES Act, and other government relief programs are enabling these organizations to invest more in building secure, resilient data centers.
