Paylocity was named one of five recipients of the first-ever Accelerator Awards from Pure Storage, an enterprise data flash storage company. The honor was presented at the company’s Pure//Accelerate conference in San Francisco, CA in March 2016.


The award recognizes Pure Storage clients for their early adoption of Pure Storage’s enterprise data flash storage technology.


“What we’re going to do is thank our early customers for their investment and their trust in Pure Storage over the years,” said David Hatfield, President of Pure Storage. “This award is for those who are pioneering, doing best practices, partnering with us to spread the word, being customer references once we’ve earned it, and sharing it with the rest of the community at large.”


Brian Boos, Senior IT Manager at Paylocity, was onsite at the Pure//Accelerate Conference to accept the award. Hatfield acknowledged Boos and Paylocity for improving their quality of service while reducing their datacenter footprint. With Paylocity being Pure Storage’s largest client at the time, both companies were faced with challenges, but were able to meet them head on. Boos also attributes Paylocity’s growth to this partnership and Pure Storage’s support.


“Thank you for your partnership, thanks for being an early innovator, and for continuing to trust us with your business,” said Hatfield, right before presenting Boos with the award.
