Optus Business recently announced the launch of one of Australia’s first All-Flash storage platforms available on-premise and in the cloud, made available by Pure Storage.
Optus said the All-Flash Storage allows Australian organisations to rapidly scale storage platforms tailored to all types of workloads, and accelerate application performance by up to 1000x to optimise network performance.
All-Flash storage is a solid state storage disk system that contains multiple flash memory drives instead of spinning hard disk drives. Flash memory, which has no moving parts, is a type of non-volatile memory that can be quickly erased and reprogrammed as required.
According to Optus, the new Optus All-Flash storage platform has the ability to consolidate workload and reduce storage footprints under a cost-effective, easy to manage subscription based ownership model. The platform can also simplify IT infrastructures and upgrades as businesses migrate legacy systems to the cloud. Optus All-Flash storage’s performance can increase agility by providing real-time analytics.
The compact storage solution – which is an alternative to larger on-premise spinning hard disk drive solutions – is built on Pure Storage’s portfolio of storage solutions including FlashArray//M, FlashBlade, and FlashStack.
