Pure Storage’s Pure-as-a-Service delivers Pure’s product portfolio on an as a service basis. The service includes Pure’s hardware, software, and “white glove” support and is acquired by customers on a pay-per-use basis with terms starting as low as 12 months. The service includes block, file and object storage and is generally available from and delivered by third party partners including DXC who do the initial planning with the customer, install and provide on-site and operational support over the lifecycle of the infrastructure in conjunction with Pure.

Pure-as-a-Service is available from partners that can include compute and networking to yield a “full stack” that is available to customers on the same as-a-Service basis. Pure and Cisco for example have partnered to deliver Full Cisco Validated Design stack on an as-a-service basis using Cisco compute nodes and networking with Pure storage – all integrated into Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions for on-premises deployments.
