Proprietary: Pure sticks to flash module design, becomes a direct flasher

The numbers don't add up...

183TB raw. Add in data protection, over-provisioning (which Pure has always done at the array level, but now needs to more than ever as they lose the added benefit of SSD over-provisioning), and other overheads and they lose probably close to half that. (~45% in the //m, //X will be at least the same, probably more)

Even if it's 100TB usable, that means they are counting a 10:1 data reduction to get to 1PB - almost double what they have claimed previously without any logic backing it.
