This IDC Market Note discusses Pure Storage's April 2, 2019, announcement of the company's acquisition of Swedish software supplier Compuverde, a vendor of general-purpose file sharing software. This announcement is significant as it foreshadows Pure Storage's entry into the general-purpose file sharing market — a space where to date the company has not offered a solution. This IDC Market Note discusses the reasons behind the purchase and explores the impact it will have on Pure Storage and its customers going forward.

"The Compuverde acquisition promises to fill a definite hole in Pure Storage's product line for a workload type that most enterprises use to at least some extent: general-purpose file sharing," said Eric Burgener, research vice president for Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technologies. "This acquisition significantly increases the company's TAM and will allow the company to compete more effectively against its largest competitors."
