Pure Storage Ushers in the New Era of Unstructured Data Storage with FlashBlade//E

Pure Storage® (NYSE: PSTG), an IT pioneer that delivers the world’s most advanced data storage technology and services, announced FlashBlade//E™, a scale-out unstructured data repository built to handle exponential data growth with industry-leading energy efficiency. At an acquisition cost competitive with disk and much lower operational costs, the introduction of FlashBlade//E means that customers no longer need to settle for disk for bulk data.

For global organizations, unstructured data capacity is expected to grow by 10x before 2030. For large-capacity, price-sensitive workloads that use current disk-based storage solutions, this growth is unsustainable. Disk-based systems are a burden on many enterprises’ IT teams and budgets as they are challenging to manage, require massive amounts of power, take up large amounts of space and their components fail too often, causing disruption and risking valuable data. Ultimately, this diminishes the ability to derive business value from data. While modern file and object storage solutions are capable of addressing many of these challenges, they haven’t been a viable option for large unstructured data repositories that are price-sensitive – until now. 

“With FlashBlade//E, we’re realizing our founder’s original vision of the all-flash data center. For workloads where flash was once price-prohibitive, we are thrilled to provide customers the major benefits Pure delivers at a TCO lower than disk.” – Amy Fowler, VP & General Manager, FlashBlade, Pure Storage

Rockset Makes Real-time Analytics Affordable at Cloud Scale with Compute-Compute Separation

Rockset, the real-time analytics database built for the cloud, announced a new release that isolates streaming ingestion from low latency queries for real-time data applications. Just like compute-storage separation was a game-changer for cloud data warehouses, compute-compute separation for real-time analytics unlocks new efficiencies in the cloud. It eliminates compute over-provisioning by allowing either streaming ingest or query serving to be scaled up and down independently. It also enables multiple isolated applications on shared real-time data, without the need for multiple replicas.

Real-time analytics has seen rapid growth with digital supply chains, e-commerce personalization, fraud detection, and real-time pricing driving both operational efficiencies and revenue growth for organizations of all sizes. One of the primary challenges in deploying real-time data applications efficiently at scale has been the compute-intensive nature of ingesting streaming data and serving low latency queries at the same time. With first-generation databases such as Elasticsearch, the lack of predictable performance arising from compute contention has led to resource over-provisioning and high operational burden for engineering teams building these applications at scale. Traditional databases rely on replicas for isolating multiple applications, but the approach requires maintaining multiple copies of the data and has proven to be too slow and expensive for real-time analytics.

“As a cloud-native real-time analytics database, Rockset already has compute-storage separation but we found that was necessary, not sufficient for streaming architectures. Compute isolation is a critical innovation for breaking down the barriers of cost and complexity in processing high-velocity streaming data and low latency queries,” says Venkat Venkataramani, co-founder and CEO of Rockset. “Rockset is the industry’s first to extend cloud-native data architectures, delivering compute-compute separation for real-time analytics, and enabling multiple applications on shared real-time data, without any operational burden.”

New Health Tech Startup Automates Data Compliance to Unlock Insights and Bring Speed to the Healthcare Industry

Integral, a new health tech company, launched the first end-to-end collaborative software suite to automate healthcare data compliance – improving the ability to quickly evaluate sensitive healthcare data and drive patient-centric analysis.

Emerging from stealth, the company announced a pre-seed funding round and launched the Integral Platform – a suite of automation and collaborative tools that enables healthcare data compliance in hours to days, rather than months, and enables businesses to make quick, informed decisions to improve everyday people’s health. 

Until now, there was no way to automate the privacy certification of healthcare datasets to comply with regulations like HIPAA. Today it is a slow, cumbersome, manual, and expensive process typically performed as a consulting service. Integral directly integrates with data storage systems such as AWS (Amazon Web Services) or GCP (Google Cloud Platform), continuously runs a set of privacy assessments, and enables users to resolve privacy violations through an easy-to-use interface. Integral powers real-time compliance so companies can work with data safely and more quickly than they ever have before.

“Today, healthcare data compliance is done on an episodic, ad-hoc basis rather than a continuous process,” said Shubh Sinha, co-founder and CEO, Integral. “I believe there needs to be a continuous solution to solve this continuous problem. By speeding up the compliance process for healthcare data, Integral makes it possible to create bespoke patient experiences, streamline drug development research, and more while ensuring patient privacy.
