As the only storage vendor to deliver subscriptions 100 per cent through the channel, Pure brings new partner benefits to Pure as-a-Service, Portworx, and Pure1
Pure Storage® (NYSE: PSTG), the IT pioneer that delivers storage as-a-service in a multi-cloud world, has announced at Pure//Accelerate™ Digital updates to channel incentives and offerings to enable partners to grow their subscription business with Pure Storage.

Portworx transitions to 100 per cent channel model
