Haven’t seen this posted on the board, but about 2 weeks ago Pure formally introduced Pure Storage Orchestrator.
Pure Storage (NYSE: PSTG), the all-flash storage platform that helps innovators build a better world with data, today announced the availability of Pure Service Orchestrator, which delivers container storage-as-a-service to empower IT and developers as they deploy container-based, microservices applications. Pure Service Orchestrator equips customers with effortless, self-managed storage that drives data centric architecture with public cloud-like agility on-premises, backed by all-flash speed and enterprise reliability.
With Pure Service Orchestrator, enterprises can now support dynamic containerized environments by consuming storage-as-a-service for containerized, persistent applications on Shared Accelerated Storage infrastructure. This enables customers to drive innovation and faster time-to-market.

Seems like interesting news for PVTL/Kubernetes people. I don’t totally understand everything this implies, but seems like a much needed solution for certain enterprises and it is scaleable and will provide more recurring revenue going forward.
