“Our vision is to deliver customers their on-premises data center infrastructure in an ‘as-a-service’ model to reduce both their upfront capital investments as well as their risk of over, or under, buying,” said Justin Mescher, vice president of cloud and data center solutions at ePlus. “As customers move workloads to the cloud, capacity planning for the data center will become increasingly difficult. ePlus Storage-as-a-Service powered by Pure Storage provides a cost-effective and convenient way to leverage Pure’s enterprise-class technology complemented by expert first-call support and customer success resources. Rather than forecasting and pre-purchasing growth capacity, customers have the flexibility to evolve at their own pace to accommodate cloud and application modernization initiatives.”
