Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

Integrating it to a regular sized company has been flawless. No problems whatsoever with the VMware integration, Veeam integration and general storage consumption. As a matter of fact, I could say we haven't seen this integration go so smoothly on any other partner. But trying to deploy it on a SMB, it was hard to get the proper budget to implement a simple iSCSI SAN.

Pure Storage FlashArray is always a leader in the market when it comes to the performance , seamless upgrades, the latency, and a simple and well designed GUI through which anyone with the basic knowledge can create and present the lun to hypervisor. It also helps in saving lot of $$ on SQL servers due to the fact that since Pure Storage FlashArray offers a very solid performance and latency, the vCPU can be cut down to 25% and thus by reducing the license cost. This is one of the major benefits that we have seen post implementing Pure Storage FlashArray in our environment.

Very suitable for general purpose data. Unsuitable for compressed and encrypted data as these functions will be repeated without gain. We expected greater gains in the Hyper-V virtualized environment, which turned out to be not as great, but still significant. Very useful in environments that require high availability because of its architecture supporting the full IO load by a controller as the environment is updated.

While expensive, Pure Storage is by far the best experience we have had with a storage array. It is strong in all categories and delivers outstanding performance. It is a great product to work with. My team is also very happy with it and they have high expectations of systems, just like I do.

FlashArray is well suited to general virtual workloads, especially where there are low latency and high I/O requirements. We run all kinds of virtualized SQL workloads without issue and we run our VMware Horizon VDI deployment right alongside the virtual server infrastructure without any performance problems. If you have a lot of test/dev environments, it is a great solution as well because of the deduplication technologies built into Array.

Well suited to workloads that require fast Flash storage and that can support a reasonable level of deduplication and compression. Most cost-effective when the workload supports data reduction. Data that cannot be deduplicated and/or compressed may not be as good a fit as it increases the cost of the storage.

Pure is suited for these requirements:
  • High performance (low latency and high throughput)
  • Small data center footprint
  • Low power (as opposed to an equivalent array sized with disk platers.)
  • Ease of operational management

I would recommend this array for any scenario. I have yet to find any faults in this product, sales team, support team, or anything else. This array is a well worth it upgrade for any data center and I would be hard-pressed to think of any scenarios where this array would not be appropriate.

VDI is a great use case for FlashArray. Users benefit from solid state drives that can help drive productivity. Placing fileservers on the array can cause the dedupe ration to drop and there is less benefit to having them on an all flasharray, we moved them off to a hybrid array.

When you need speed, it's FAST, especially for MS SQL databases. If you are having bottlenecks, you can spend your time finding it in the code because it's not Pure Storage. Love the data reduction and duplication. We can store so much more on this unit than the base physical size. Love the data snapshots. When you need to complete copy your entire environment for testing etc. Nothing is easier, a few clicks and you are done. Extremely helpful for testing and training.

Pure Storage FlashArray works extremely well as an on-premise high-performing storage array. It has worked very effectively for us in our virtualization environment, throwing workloads like Oracle, PeopleSoft, OpenShift, VDI, etc. at it. Their APIs and software support makes integrations with hypervisors and hardware very straight forward. If you need low performing disk arrays with simply a lot of storage capacity, this may not be appropriate for your environment - you can definitely get a ton of cheap capacity elsewhere.
