#51 – Pure Accelerate Pregame

Chris EvansSoundbytes

This episode was recorded at Pure Accelerate in San Francisco on Tuesday 22nd May 2018 just before the event started.  Chris talks to Matt Leib and eventually Ray Lucchesi, initially about the role of the reseller, then eventually moving towards NVMe over Fabrics.  As with all live recorded podcasts, there’s a little background noise, including the weekly noon siren test.  The group speculates on what we can expect to be announced by Pure, the benefits of the Evergreen program, then whether we’re headed back to a hardware future for storage.

In the recording Ray talks about a recent vendor interview.  We’re fairly certain he’s talking about Apeiron.  Look out for a follow-up to this podcast, discussing what was actually announced by Pure Storage.
