WWT began our strategic relationship with Pure Storage in 2013. Since then, WWT has quickly grown to become one of Pure Storage’s largest partners.
Customers spanning service providers, media and entertainment, manufacturing and healthcare have partnered with WWT and Pure Storage to run mission-critical, core virtualization, data analytics and artificial intelligence workloads.
WWT is a proud Elite Partner, dedicated to continued growth and excellence in support of the Pure Storage business in our Advanced Technology Center (ATC), where our customers can explore Pure Storage offerings.
Working with Pure, WWT integrates technologies from other partners within the WWT ecosystem to create even more powerful storage solutions for our customers.
These technology integrations include the NVIDIA DGX-1 and DGX-2 that we pair with Pure Storage FlashBlade as a solution for artificial intelligence and data analytics. Another solution incorporates the Cisco UCS which we integrate with FlashArray to create a converged infrastructure FlashStack solution.
