This week Pure Storage is at Microsoft Ignite 2016 in Atlanta with an awesome team of Microsoft tech experts.
We’re showcasing Smart Storage solutions for Microsoft technologies. At our Ignite expo booth, we’ll have demos of Pure Storage-powered SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Private Cloud automation with PowerShell and SMI-S, as well as a hybrid cloud solution that automates connectivity between Pure Storage and Azure.
I’m super excited about this event because of the amazing customer interactions we’ve had at industry events this year with customers and partners who know Pure, who use Pure in their data centers, and/or are evaluating Pure for their data and application storage needs.
What could be better than talking to folks who already know us? Informing those who don’t know who we are and watching lights turn on when we have the chance to share our story: Pure has engineered Smart Storage for Cloud IT that is efficient, effortless and Evergreen. It just works, does more without compromise and improves over time.
In August 2016, Pure was again recognized by Gartner as a leader in their Magic Quadrant for Solid State Arrays (SSAs). For the third straight year, Pure Storage is positioned furthest along the “Completeness of Vision” axis in the Leaders Quadrant. Here's the Press Release.
Also in August 2016, Gartner announced Pure as No. 1 in three of five Critical Capabilities for Solid State Arrays in the categories of: Online Transactions Processing, Virtualization and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. Download the Report. Read the Blog. Download the Gartner Reports.
Pure’s customer advocacy Net Promoter Score is now up to 83 (as audited by Satmetrix), and is in the top 1% of scores by consumer and enterprises businesses. Pure is averaging more than 50 points higher in NPS than third-party scores for our major competitors.
Microsoft Ignite brings together a global audience with many interests, and we can’t wait to talk to folks to see how Pure Storage can help them accelerate success with their cloud IT initiatives. Be sure to visit with Pure Storage at the Ignite expo and meet our Microsoft experts.
