Take the Survey!

Within the survey, you can select your preference of Virtual Lab access (FlashArray™, FlashBlade®, None) and if you would like to receive a Pure Storage Administrative Associate Certification Voucher (Yes, No). Pure PEAK will issue vouchers and lab access within two weeks of survey completion.

Pure Storage Virtual Labs

This feature provides you with access to virtualized Pure products in a browser-based sandbox environment.  Virtualized FlashArray and FlashBlade appliances are connected to Windows servers, and allow you to practice a range of configuration and administrative skills. A comprehensive lab guide is provided to assist you through practice scenarios.

Accessing your Virtual Lab

Following completion of the survey, if selected, the PEAK team will deploy your lab instance. You will receive an email with a unique link to your lab instance from peak-education@purestorage.com. This link is unique to you, and no one else will share access- don’t lose it!  The lab will be available for 14 days from the time of issue or for 16 total hours of runtime, whichever occurs first.  Shut down your lab when not in use as the clock runs while the lab is running!

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Pure PEAK.
