Really the deduplication and compression ratio has been all over these guys. The speed on the flash storage seems more customized if I may say and our deployments were smooth. Nothing against these guys since we work with all at the same level, but there are very notable perks when talking about Pure Storage FlashArray.

It was a very tight call before finalizing the solution. Since Pure Storage FlashArray was able to offer the best deal and the kind of relationship the pure engineer maintained with us during the entire POC journey made them unique compared with the other vendors and I strongly believe that is a winning situation for Pure Storage FlashArray.

Pure Storage FlashArray came up as being the most cost-effective of the lot plus the extras added like call-home support were very welcome. The competitors' options were a lot more expensive and the call-home support added a lot more to the already high costs.

The Pure Storage FlashArray blows any other array I've used out of the water. We had an investment in EqualLogic and purchased an all-flash array. A couple of years later and with many performance issues, we purchased our first Pure Storage array and the difference was amazing. All our performance issues were gone. I've considered other vendors over the years since and no one has been able to get close to the features that Pure offers.

[They] seemed to have all the right things in place for our environment. A bit costly up front, but good return on less stress, better performance and good support whenever we do have issues.

As a government organization, we cannot just choose a specific product for purchase, so Pure FlashArray was one of the participants that was able to meet the needs of the purchasing process. In proof of concept it proved simpler and more versatile than the HPE solution in the circumstances of our environment.

I believe that Pure has set itself way ahead of its competition in the storage market, you could probably find something faster but it will lack in ease of use. You could pay less for something but it will lack a key feature that Pure offers. It is hard to find something like Pure!

The ease of use was the best part. Even the more modern versions of Dell EMC still had the "old school" way of dealing with things. I did not need a Pure engineering team to come out and install the array like I would have needed with EMC.

We have all these devices in our private cloud so that the comparison is given by itself. If we have an application that is delaying, we only have to migrate the volume to the Pure Storage FlashArray and without more arrangements. We always manage to lower the latency and its once the online compression improves significantly.

At the time, Array had more feature-rich monitoring software that enabled you to see per-VM performance metrics of machines running on your array. Pure has since introduced similar reporting. Pure continues to innovate and provide the features that competitors are offering, providing less and less reason to look at the competition. Plus, Pure arrays are all flash and not a hybrid, or built around a hybrid model, or with flash support simply tacked on.

We initially evaluated NetApp EF-series and EMC XtremeIO arrays against the Pure FlashArray. The NetApp array was low cost but lacked many of the features of the other two arrays. XtremeIO was more expensive than the Pure FlashArray solution, did not perform as well on data reduction, and required additional components to match some of the Pure features.

In a market with various storage vendors like NetApp, IBM, EMC, HDS, HP, Dell, Fujitsu, Pure Storage has key areas of advantage in the simplicity of configuration and use, online and non-disruptive way to scale array performance, reliability and performance, and a competitive cost point. Very good customer support and a collaborative team.

Pure Storage offers better support plans, simple UI and easy upgrade options. It can be more pricey but, you get what you pay for and Pure is very competitive when it comes to pricing for features/value. Win-Win-Win!

We baked off Pure Storage FlashArray against NetApp and Nimble and Pure blew both of those products out of the water. Pure's all-flash approach guaranteed that none of our critical data would ever be on spinning disk - so that was a very important topic for use. Pure was also one of the first storage vendors to provide encryption across the whole array as well, and that was a big selling point for us.

We reviewed Dell EMC and said no because of spin drives, hard upgrades. NetApp was not easy enough to use.
Pure Storage was easy of use, had reliability, evergreen, and we got much more in productivity than we could even imagine at the time.

NetApp has a lot of issues. Its software is clunky and complicated. It wastes much capacity in the storage operating system. It doesn't do deduplication and compression that well and takes a CPU hit when it does. And all-flash storage was never really an option. At just about every level, we were tired of NetApp and have since become used to the simplicity and performance of Pure.
