FlashBlade: Putting File- and Object-Based Storage Vendors En Garde
This IDC Flash takes a closer look at FlashBlade and its target markets and customers and discusses the strategic value of this platform for Pure Storage in light of recent developments in the all-flash array (AFA) space. In March 2016, Pure Storage announced FlashBlade, an AFA that promised to open significant new markets for it as a company. Pure Storage purposefully moved very slowly with the product introduction, conducted an extended beta period with a high number of beta sites across a variety of industries, and generated the first revenue from FlashBlade in July 2016.
