About this Episode

Want to hear a good origin story? Or about the future of data? You're in luck. As Pure Storage heads into its annual Pure Accelerate Conference in Austin next week, it's looking to celebrate its 10th anniversary. 10 years in which Pure has grown from a seed-stage start-up to a ~$4B publically traded company. And Pure continues to be a disrupter in the storage industry.

Given this milestone, we thought we'd step back and talk to the man behind the all-flash storage revolution, Pure's Co-Founder and CTO John "Coz" Colgrove.

Coz touches on everything you're interested it, from the origins of Pure, to current challenges, to the future of storage.

The interview starts about 3 minutes in, if you're the type who likes to fast foward.

Special thanks from the MI&S DataCentric team to Terri, Armi, and Rena at Pure Storage for making this happen and, of course, to Coz, who was very generous with his time. Tune in!
