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

That was indeed the point. DSSD similarly had extremely high-performance, if albeit extremely high-priced, proprietary flash modules in a proprietary enclosure with a proprietary NVMe-like direct PCIe connect. Admittedly, there were differences; DSSD was designed as a rack-scale solution and never intended to be a general purpose file/print array with dedupe, compression, replication, leather seats, and cupholders. When sold, implemented, and used as designed, it did one thing and did it well - store and retrieve data really, really fast.
