Portworx Cloud Consumption

Portworx, the “gold standard” in Kubernetes storage for the enterprise according to GigaOm Research, allows customers to operate and scale their modern enterprise apps consistently on any cloud or data center with the performance, security, and data protection they are used to. Because cloud native applications running on Kubernetes are highly dynamic, estimating the exact number of servers needed to run applications on Kubernetes is a significant challenge which leads to overprovisioning and higher costs.

To solve this challenge, Portworx is introducing flexibility to allow customers’ consumption of Portworx to match the ebbs and flows of their applications. Previously, customers would purchase one or more annual Portworx licenses which could each be run on any single server. If they needed to scale beyond the number of licenses purchased, however, they would have to contact sales to purchase additional licenses. With the new flexible pricing, customers purchase a number of hours, rather than a license tied to a single server. These hours can be consumed at any rate throughout the year depending on how many servers they need to run, similar to how public cloud reserved instance pricing works.

“As enterprises increasingly desire as-a-Service solutions and a cloud-like experience, Pure has been an incredible partner in delivering robust and differentiated services to our joint clients. We are excited to see Pure’s continued expansion of its subscription services portfolio, now with FlashStack as-a-Service and Portworx Cloud Consumption.” — Juan Orlandini, Chief Architect, Cloud + Data Center Transformation, Insight
