Healthcare is rapidly transitioning from a volume to value based system. The future success of healthcare organizations will depend upon their ability to drive quality outcomes and manage patient populations. Data analytics will be a critical success factor not only to measure operational performance but to be able to analyze patterns and predict clinical and financial outcomes. However, simply capturing and interpreting the data is not sufficient. It must also be operationalized into the clinical workflow which is where many organizations struggle.

Latency is the life-blood of any database application. When transactions slow, it is often a direct result of disk contention at the storage layer driving-up storage I/O latency, which directly translates into slower transactions and a slower end-user experience. Moving to an all-flash architecture for your database affords immediate and obvious performance benefits, but also introduces a whole host of operational benefits: - Simplify operations - Eliminate tuning - Provide a price point that is less expensive than disk based and even hybrid systems

Pure Storage set out with a simple mission: to create a purpose-built storage array that overcomes these barriers. The result is the Pure Storage FlashArray and its tightly-coupled software, the Purity Operating Environment. When compared to a disk array, the FlashArray is 10X faster (on both IOPS and latency); 10X more efficient in power, space, and cooling; more reliable on enterprise workloads; so simple that it installs in minutes and less costly than the $5 per GB that is the going rate for performance disk.
