Flash Storage Solution' 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 --  Pure Storage, the
all-flash enterprise storage array company, today announced it has
been honored with the 2012 Best Practices Award from Frost &
Sullivan. The global research and analysis firm crowned the Pure
Storage FlashArray 2012's 'Most Innovative Enterprise Flash Storage
Solution,' based on its research team's independent evaluation of
flash storage vendors, in which they reviewed both all-flash and
hybrid flash storage solutions. Frost & Sullivan's analysts selected
FlashArray for its superior achievement and performance in
technological innovation. Winners of the Frost & Sullivan 2012 Best
Practices Awards were announced at the North American Excellence in
Best Practices Awards Banquet on November 8th in San Antonio, Texas.  
"Based on our research in the space, we believe Pure Storage is
poised to disrupt the enterprise storage market due to its superior
performance and resiliency, at a price point that is comparable to
traditional disk arrays," said Siva Charan, Research Analyst, Frost &
Sullivan. "Delivering up to 10 times more speed, reliability and
efficiency, with game-changing affordability, it would be difficult
for anyone to ignore the advantages of FlashArray. Based on our
in-depth analysis of the enterprise flash storage solutions in North
America, we are pleased to honor Pure Storage with the New Product
Innovation Award for 2012." 
The Pure Storage FlashArray is the industry's first enterprise class
all-flash storage array that is production-ready and delivers all the
performance of flash at less than the price of disk (priced at

efficient, and radically simpler to manage, all at less than the
price of performance disk. The Pure Storage FlashArray is ideal for
high performance workloads, including server virtualization, desktop
virtualization (VDI), database (OLTP, real-time analytics) and cloud
computing.

Pure Storage and the FlashArray. The company was recently honored by
the Wall Street Journal Tech
nology Innovation Awards, where
FlashArray won in the Computing Systems category and was honored with
the Silver award for overall innovation of the year.  
"We are deeply honored for this recognition from Frost & Sullivan,
which further validates that our unique approach to enterprise
storage is delivering what the market is hungry for," said Scott
Dietzen, CEO at Pure Storage. "We believe that flash memory, which
has long been advancing consumer electronics, is now powering a new
