CloudEast CoastGovernmentTop StoriesWest Coast

40% of US federal agencies, including three branches of the Department of Defense, rely on Pure Storage.

Pure Storage has announced new momentum within the US public sector as government plans for infrastructure modernization accelerate.

Pure is a trusted partner to essential government agencies across the intelligence, space, cyber, defense, civilian, health, state, local and education markets.

With more than 175 of the United States’ 440 federal agencies relying on its services, Pure serves agencies across all three branches of the US Federal Government and three branches of the US Department of Defense.

At the state, local and education (SLED) level, Pure has customer representation in 48 of the 50 US states.

Pure Storage’s public sector business achieved all-time highs in Q3 as its customer base and use case portfolio grew. New public sector customers from the quarter include:

  • A large agency within the Department of Treasury chose Pure to replace its legacy storage arrays with simple, scalable all-flash solutions that help solve its largest, most-complex data management challenges. Together, Pure and a strategic partner are providing the agency a true As-a-Service experience with non-disruptive upgrades via the Evergreen program.
  • A core agency within the Department of Homeland Security chose Pure FlashBlade to help power its advanced analytics and AI operations. This technology is central to the agency’s mission of enhancing national security through innovation, intelligence, collaboration and trust.
  • Commonwealth of Massachusetts adopted Pure As-a-Service complete with FlashArray, FlashStack for Block Performance and Block Capacity, FlashBlade and the Portworx Suite to containerize and modernize key applications. Armed with these advancements, the Commonwealth was able to modernize its infrastructure and application to support continuity of services to its agencies and the public.

Trends and developments in cloud transformation, ransomware, cybersecurity, DevOps and AI are all driving modernization demand within the public sector, across Federal, SLED and Healthcare.

Agencies are looking to implement hybrid cloud strategies that best serve their goals, moving some workloads to the cloud while repatriating others to on-premises, with containerization becoming increasingly essential.

Accelerating this further, the American Rescue Plan, CARES Act and other government relief programs are enabling these organizations to invest more in building secure, resilient data centers that these new technologies require.
