Psaki spent twenty years in the ARMY and has a great understanding of the systems requirements, and limitations, of a data center.

During the interview, he describes the data growth explosion and the shift to flash memory.  He tells the federal audience why they should look at Pure Storage for breakthroughs in storage.

In fact, Pure Storage recently announced dozens of new aspects of storage that Pure Storage can provide.

Right now the Internet of Things has combined with increases in data to force data centers to improve the way they store data.

One relatively unknown specification will impact all of us.  It goes by the relatively innocuous acronym of NVMe, which stands for Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Specification.

When you combine this the innovations in flash storage, you get a situation that can adapt to the drastic increase in storage requirements for the future.
