Pure Storage yesterday launched a new service level agreement (SLA) for its Evergreen//One offering, which it described as the “only energy efficiency guarantee in the enterprise storage-as-a-service (STaaS) market.

According to a release, it guarantees energy efficiency for organizations of all sizes by enabling them to measure the maximum number of actual Watts per tebibyte (TiB). If the guaranteed Watts/TiB is not met, the customer can request “service credits and Pure Storage will execute remediation actions, including densification or consolidation, at no additional cost.”

The release went on to say that the enterprise storage industry has “long been burdened by substantial energy usage, high costs, short technology refresh cycles, forklift upgrades, unplanned downtime, and overall data storage complexity.

“Global enterprises, however, are on a path to embrace flexible, consumption-based operating models and modern services that both drive stronger value and efficiencies, and contribute to the overall reduction of environmental impact over time.”
