We start by clicking on the "Storage" tab, and then clicking the "+" sign next to "Volumes".
The final step is to name the volume and select the desired size.
That's all there is to it. There is no need to worry about performance policies, no need to assign a block size, no need to enable encryption, and no need to tune data services like compression, caching, or deduplication. Pure Storage takes care of all of that for you with always on inline and post-process data reduction, 256-bit AES encryption that cannot be turned off, and variable block handling down to 512 bytes. We don't think managing storage should require a PhD, and in the face of rising complexity Pure Storage is setting the bar on performance and manageability.
