Ideal has had a longstanding relationship with Pure, but the signing of the Silver Partnership agreement reflects increased customer interest in converged infrastructure, our ability to work across architectures to develop and execute solutions aligned to customer objectives, and our success in meeting Pure’s exacting technical and sales criteria.
