Pure Storage and Cisco have linked arms to build a converged FlashStack system for AI, a kind of AIRI microMINI but one that will run at half the speed. FlashStack is a line of reference architecture converged systems using Pure Storage all-flash arrays, Cisco UCS servers and Nexus switches. It has typically competed with the …
