Pure Storage extends TB-for-TB trade-in program to EMC’s VMAX, XtremIO

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 8, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Pure Storage (NYSE: PSTG), the market’s leading independent all-flash data platform vendor for the cloud era, today announced the “NVMe Now” promotion, which extends its Evergreen™ Storage program to all Dell EMC VMAX and XtremIO products. Now through October 31, 2017, organizations using VMAX and XtremIO can take advantage of the same terabyte-for-terabyte trade-in program loved by Pure Storage customers with qualifying upgrade to the new, all-NVMe FlashArray//X.

With Evergreen Storage, Pure Storage customers can trade in older, less dense flash capacity for the latest, densest flash at any time. Now, this Evergreen benefit extends to VMAX and XtremIO customers with a cost-effective on-ramp to Pure Storage. Customers may trade-in their Dell-EMC VMAX or XtremIO TBs for Pure Storage TB credits, which can be applied to new Pure Storage FlashArray purchases. Just as we do for existing customers, these TB-credits can be applied to offset up to 25 percent of the capacity purchased in any new FlashArray//M or FlashArray//X. For more details and additional information on configuration types, please visit our blog.

“New versions of VMAX and XtremIO mean another round of generational forklift upgrades. The Evergreen Storage program eliminates the need for customers to re-buy storage every generation, for a total cost of ownership savings of close to 50 percent over six years,” said Matt Kixmoeller, VP of Product, Pure Storage. “Pure Storage customers also benefit from products that are engineered to be fundamentally modular and field-upgradeable across generations, without disruption or data migration. Now, we are extending an Evergreen on-ramp to Dell EMC customers so they can begin to experience these same benefits.”

FlashArray//X is the first all-NVMe, enterprise-class all-flash array from Pure Storage. To see FlashArray//X in action or for a hands-on demonstration, join us at our annual conference, Pure//Accelerate, June 12-14 in San Francisco.
