“Synergy” is defined as the interaction of elements to produce an effect greater than the sum of their parts. That definition certainly holds true for WWT’s longtime relationships with a pair of innovative technology partners: Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Pure Storage.

WWT works with both of these recognized industry leaders on optimized storage and cloud solutions that can be showcased in WWT’s Digital Platform — and a recent example of that synergistic power is the Pure Cloud Block Store™ (CBS) on AWS solution, now available to experience as a featured lab in the ATC for customers to evaluate how it works and the benefits it offers for their unique environment.

Gain efficiencies and save with Pure Cloud Block Store™ on AWS.

A culmination of the AWS and Pure partnership, Pure Cloud Block Store™ on AWS is a cloud-native data protection and mobility service that enables mission-critical applications to run seamlessly on the cloud. It empowers cloud storage for web-scale applications, driving true hybrid operations with consistent data services, resiliency and APIs, plus bi-directional mobility and seamless management and orchestration. 

In addition, it offers these benefits:

  • Develop and deploy applications faster in the cloud, spinning up an efficient DevTest environment quickly and economically. Explore numerous “what if” scenarios without impacting your production environment, accelerating time to market.
  • Speed disaster recovery by leveraging the cloud with the same operational practices used on-prem, ensuring high availability of applications and data, even across widely dispersed locations.
  • Cost savings from seamlessly moving data wherever it lives, for a consistent user experience. Snapshots and clones consume no added storage resources.

Experience Pure Cloud Block Store™ on AWS in our ATC lab.

The Pure Cloud Block Store™ on AWS lab demonstrates what it’s like to deploy a Pure CBS array in an AWS environment, showcasing the ease of deployment and leveraging ATC automation to showcase workloads in AWS — all without incurring the cost of an actual deployment.

Lab users will gain a sense of the benefits of this solution for their specific environment. You can simply need to register to gain anytime access to the on-demand lab. Users will get a brief overview of AWS concepts and can operate the Purity-based CBS web user interface and command-line interface to become familiar, experience the solution with Purity and Ansible Tower automation and enter and run sample workflows to gauge the performance of Pure Cloud Block Store™ on AWS.

Global engineering resources are on hand to provide insight, answer questions and share tips on how to leverage lab resources and discuss CBS, AWS or the Digital Platform. See it for yourself, or contact us to learn more.
