"With the expansion of Pure’s Evergreen portfolio, we continue to challenge the status quo of enterprise Storage as-a-Service, yet again delivering industry-first guarantees and AI-powered services to solve problems for our customers," Prakash Darji, VP and GM of Pure's digital experience business unit, said.

"As enterprises feel increased pressures to maximize resource and energy efficiency and to safeguard their data from disaster, we are providing them with unparalleled levels of resiliency and efficiency all through a simple and smart services platform."
