The following podcast was recorded at Pure Accelerate in San Francisco in June 2017.  The recording was made behind the main stage, so apologies for the background noise which does get pretty loud for a while!  Chris talks to Ivan Iannaccone, Director of Product Management (also known as Emperor of Flash) at Pure Storage.  The conversation goes through the new software features of FlashArray, including ActiveCluster, VVOLs, NVMe and snapshots.
