Pure Storage | March 06, 2023
Pure Storage®, the IT pioneer that provides the most sophisticated data storage technology and services, has recently introduced FlashBlade//ETM, a scale-out unstructured data repository designed to accommodate exponential data growth with best-in-class energy efficiency. FlashBlade//E eliminates the need for customers to settle for disc storage, as its acquisition cost is comparable to that of disc, and its operational costs are much lower.
FlashBlade//E offers an improved approach to managing unstructured data growth efficiently, reliably, and sustainably, with an industry-leading user experience and economics allowing customers to eliminate disc in their data center. Its advantages include:
FlashBlade//E is the industry leader in energy efficiency, consuming up to five times less energy than the disk-based systems it will substitute. The larger the system, the more efficient it is, thereby assisting organizations in achieving their increasingly vital sustainability objectives.
FlashBlade//E is designed to flex and grow on demand, with 10-20x more consistency than hard disk-based systems, without disruption or forklift upgrades. The solution is easy to manage at any scale due to its cloud-like simplicity, adaptability, and predictable performance.
FlashBlade//E is offered for less than $0.20 per GB, including three years of support. The platform begins at 4PB and scales while providing dependable performance.
The solution will be available to the general public by the end of April 2023. In addition to the standard purchase, customers can deploy FlashBlade//E through an innovative service tier of Pure's Evergreen//One Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) subscription, offering a cloud experience and pay-as-you-go economics with on-premises deployment control.

In a recent announcement, Inspur Information’s NF8480M6 achieved a world record of 359,780 SAPS and is ranked first in SAP SD 2-tier performance benchmark for 4-socket servers using the Copper Lake platform.
The SAP Sales & Distribution (SD) 2-Tier Benchmark is widely recognized as a benchmark in a two-tier architecture based on sales and distribution modules. The SAP SD 2-Tier Benchmark Test has evolved into a crucial indicator of operational performance for the production systems of actual enterprises. Many enterprise users regard it as a more flexible and valuable guide for selecting a server platform, since it considers exact production needs of enterprise users during the architecture design itself. A higher benchmark test score indicates that the server system can accommodate more users and offer more productivity for businesses or a higher SAPS value.
The record set by Inspur NF8480M6 in SAP SD 2-Tier Benchmark for 4-Socket Servers is due to the design philosophy of openness, excellence, extremeness and security, which enables Inspur to increase usability, reliability and performance of its servers.
