Its Partner Program has been specifically designed to bolster smarter and innovative businesses and is crucial to Pure Storage’s success.

By combining respective areas of knowledge and expertise, Pure Storage capitalizes on the best-in-class storage solutions to minimize risks and boost critical business initiatives.

A few days back, Pure Storage’s subsidiary, Portworx, collaborated with TeleMessage to improve the latter’s secure and compliant data storage for global enterprise customers. Per the agreement, TeleMessage capitalized on Portworx Enterprise, an end-to-end storage and data management solution on the back of a Kubernetes-based infrastructure. Kubernetes is an open-source system that automates software deployment.

Pure Storage’s performance is gaining from continued momentum in Pure as-a-Service, Portworx and Evergreen Storage subscription services. The company is benefiting from strength across FlashArray and FlashBlade businesses as well as strong prospects in the data-driven markets of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Internet of Things, Real-time Analytics and Simulation. Solid uptake of Cloud Block Store, ObjectEngine Cloud and CloudSnap augurs well in the long haul.
