New Pure Service Orchestrator Demo

You may want to make this full screen to see all the CLI glory. What you will see in this demo is the initial install of Pure Service Orchestrator on a upstream version of Kubernetes.

Using Snapshots with the Pure Storage Plugin for Kubernetes

One request from customers is not only provision persistent storage for Kubernetes but also integrate into workflows that may need to snap and copy the data for different environments. Much like we do this with powershell or python for SQL and Oracle environments to accelerate development or QA. Pure has enabled snapshots using the Pure […]
