Likelihood to Recommend

Pure Storage FlashBlade

It's not appropriate for storage workloads that need replication to another site, for instance, disaster recovery.It's also not appropriate for storage processes that rely on cloning and snapshot capability, for instance, database server volume cloning for refreshing data between application environments.

Cons

Pure Storage FlashBlade

  • The user interface is a little clunky.

Without exception, the contacts with support have been quick and extremely knowledgeable. I do not fear getting an underqualified engineer to assess or work on my arrays. In addition to this support structure, the sales engineers are top notch as well.

Alternatives Considered

Pure Storage FlashBlade

Pure is easiest to install and administer making it a perfect fit for our EDA scratch environment. Pure lacks mixed mode support which forces Qualcomm to use NetApp or Isilon for any SMB environments.
