CI solutions deliver faster time to value

Pure Storage introduces all-flash approach to converged infrastructure: FlashStack CI.

By Ellie Burns

FlashStack CI, a new line of heterogeneous converged infrastructure (CI) solutions, has been launched by Pure Storage.

The CI solutions comprise of comprehensive reference architectures, deployment and sizing guidelines and single-call support, delivered through FlashStack Authorized Support Partners within the Pure Storage Partner Program (P3).

Today, IT departments are increasingly turning to CI solutions to simplify the design and repeatability of their data centre infrastructure investments. FlashStack CI offers a holistic, all-flash, alternative to disk-based CI offerings.

Fuelled by FlashArray, FlashStack CI eliminates performance bottlenecks, increases infrastructure reliability, and provides dramatic rack space, power and cooling savings.

The new line of solutions include FlashStack CI for VMware Horizon, which combines Pure Storage 400 Series FlashArrays, Cisco UCS Blade Servers, Nexus switches and VMware vSphere 5.5 with VMware Horizon 6.

The FlashStack CI for VMware Horizon enables rapid implementation and time to value of a high performance infrastructure that supports VDI deployments.

"VMware Horizon, the industry’s most comprehensive desktop solution, paired with Pure Storage FlashStack CI, will provide organizations with technology that is simple to deploy and can accelerate time-to-value," said Sumit Dhawan, senior vice president and general manager, desktop products and end-user computing at VMware.
