With More Data Than Ever to Manage, Storage Gets Smarter

When Rob  Barker first started at Pure Storage, he says the conversations were all about one thing: Performance. With a laser-focus on flash memory, that was a conversation that helped Pure crack the market.

But after performance is handled, the conversations have changed: Now, his customers want to find out how to automate routine tasks and spend more time thinking about how to drive their organizations forward.

I rarely go into a customer nowadays that has a performance pain point, because it’s been solved with Pure’s all-flash architecture, Barkz said at Microsoft Ignite. Now, his customers are excited about what value the platform can bring.

Barkz has been heavily focused on that platform, particularly with scripting tools that allow them to automate the more tedious processes while focusing on more strategic goals.

And to make it easier for anyone to get up to speed, Pure Storage now offers both PowerShell (just updated this week) and Python scripting for its storage solutions.
