Portworx Transitions to 100% Channel Model

With Portworx, which Pure acquired in late 2020, Pure delivers the industry’s most complete Kubernetes Data Services Platform for building, automating, protecting, and securing cloud-native applications.
Customers are able to accelerate their digital transformation by easily running any cloud-native application, in any cloud, using any Kubernetes platform with built-in high availability, data protection, data security, and hybrid cloud mobility.
With Portworx sales now 100% channel led – just like the rest of Pure’s products and services – partners are able to expand their subscription offerings to cover Kubernetes-based applications.
