What is Pure Storage FlashArray//m?

FlashArray//m enables you to transform your rack, data center, or cloud, with an affordable all-flash array capable of consolidating all your key business applications.

FlashArray//m’s performance can also make your business smarter by unleashing the power of real-time analytics, driving customer loyalty, and creating new, innovative customer experiences that simply weren’t possible with disk.

What is Flocker?

Flocker gives operations teams the tools they need to manage stateful microservices built using Docker containers. It is designed to work with storage systems like those provided by FlashArray//m.

When using containers natively, a container’s data does not move with it when the container moves to a new server.

Flocker in action

Here is how Flocker works with Pure Storage to create a flexible storage environment for your Docker containers.

Flocker and Pure Storage

Used alongside tools like the Docker Engine, Docker Swarm or Apache Mesos, or by itself, Flocker enables containers and data to move together between hosts in a cluster, an operational requirement for running stateful services like databases in containers.

You can download the Pure Storage driver for Flocker today.
