Product launches are always a blast. You get to unveil something people for worked on for months, sometimes even years.
As part of Pure Storage’s inaugural user conference, they were introducing a revolutionary cloud-scale data platform – FlashBlade. It’s an amazing piece of technology that somehow is able to be big (in storage capacity), fast (in data rate), and simple (to use). The first time we ever saw it, we knew FlashBlade was going to be huge – and that we were responsible for introducing this incredible product to the world. Highlighted during the keynote presentation, this product announcement could not have pumped up an auditorium of tech nerd anymore. It was awesome.
