With this announcement, Pure becomes the first mainstream enterprise storage provider to widely support NVMe-oF RoCE, which enables enterprises to get flash media closer to applications for more real-time access and greater consolidation.

Pure Storage, the all-flash storage provider today announced it has added powerful new DirectFlash™ Fabric capability for end-to-end NVMe and NVMe-oF support in Purity 5.2, the software-defined engine of its FlashArray//X products.

“The future is delivering applications and services at the speed of thought. To do this, applications can no longer live within barriers, they must interact, intercommunicate and share datasets in real-time. Architectures must converge alongside the data, and break down the barriers that exist today. DirectFlash Fabric is a key component for helping enterprises unify their cloud,” said Chadd Kenney, Vice President of Product and Solutions, Pure Storage.

The new capability further extends Pure’s leadership in empowering customers to approach hybrid cloud with a new level of unified infrastructure – to run apps anywhere and protect data everywhere.

DirectFlash Fabric enables customers to improve performance of enterprise mission critical applications as well as new web-scale applications that traditionally have relied on direct attached storage.
