The Pure Storage FlashBlade is a custom designed NAS system that scales by adding additional blades that contain both the processing function and NAND flash storage modules. With a unique design, Pure Storage has brought a NAS system to market that does not rely on commodity components. Object storage support was subsequently added to FlashBlade. Objects are stored in native format.

FlashBlade is a storage system for unstructured data, currently supporting file access using the NFSv3 and CIFS/SMB 2.1 protocol and object access with S3 protocol API. At some point in the future, protocol support for CIFS/SMB 3.0 will be added for NAS support.

The FlashBlade//S models represent the second generation of FlashBlade systems and offers two distinct models – //S200 and //S500. The //S models utilize a 5U chassis, and a more modular design than the previous generation by utilizing Pure’s Direct Flash Modules.
