Pure Storage FlashBlade goes to work with Azure Stack

Gridpro, a Swedish cloud management software vendor, has integrated Pure Storage’s unified file and object FlashBlade array with Azure stack.

Gridpro is the developer of EvOps, a software technology that plugs various product and services into Azure Stack Hub. EvOps integrates FlashBlade management into Azure Stack Hub and provisions file systems and object store account through EvOps workflows.

The integration represents the first time Pure Storage and Azure Stack Hub are physically working side-by-side in the data centre,” Pure Storage engineer director Brian Gold said in a blog post.

He suggests three use cases for an Azure Stack Hub/FlashBlade combo: storing and processing analytics data; backup and restores of snapshotted Azure Stack Hub virtual machine instances; and large-capacity, fast access object storage. These use cases could be found in edge data centers with local processing and storage requirements, and also meet data locality needs.
