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.

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.

Modern enterprises are challenged to deliver innovations and services that can keep up with a constantly fast-moving society — with no downtime allowed.

According to Google, 53 percent of mobile users will leave a site that takes over three seconds to load. Applications must be available and accessible at all times.
