This blog will showcase how to deploy an Azure VM that has a configured Microsoft SQL Instance that is connected to a Cloud Block Store (CBS) volume. I have previously showcased VM & CBS deployments with both Powershell and Terraform, but its time to bring it to a new language!
When running operations against an RDM, you may need to know the backing volume. Unfortunately with RDM’s there is no easy way to identify this without doing a manual comparison between vCenter Server & the Array. This post will explain how to map an RDM to a Pure Volume to extract the Name and Serial number of the backing volume.
Now that the latest Pure Storage vSphere Client Plugin is available as a remote plugin is is now deployed as an OVA. I have put together this quick script to automate deploying of the Pure Storage VMware Appliance.
On July 28, 2021 Pure Storage released the latest version of their plugin version 5.0.0. Not only is this a new version, but it also runs on the new remote plugin architecture that VMware has released in vSphere 6.7U3 and vSphere 7.0+. This post will explore how to deploy and manage version 5.0.0 as well as discuss the latest features in this release! (Some are long awaited!)
In previous posts I have covered use cases on how to utilize Pure Cloud Block Store (CBS), but if we look back I haven’t explained how it can be deployed. This blog will cover how to quickly launch CBS with the pre-requisites in AWS.

Did you know that Equinix has a Bare Metal as a Service (BMaaS) offering? Back in March Pure Storage also announced their Pure Storage® on Equinix Metal™ offering. This allows users to not only procure the Pure Storage FlashArray as an op-ex based purchase, but it also lets you spin up physical servers in Equinix Metal DC’s and connect them to a physical dedicated FlashArray. In this series I will cover how to deploy a vSphere environment on Equinix Metal with Terraform.
The Pure Storage OVA is a single OVA deployment that can be configured for different roles. Today VM Analytics is the only available role, with more coming. Version 3.1.0 includes some new features and fixes, lets dive in and take a look.
